THE RELATIONSHIP OF OXYGEN SATURATION WITH MALAISE IN DIABETES MELLITUS PATIENTS IN JEMBER
Keywords:Diabetes Mellitus, Malaise, Oxygen Saturation
Diabetes mellitus causes sugar in the blood to not be brought into cells and causes hyperglycemia. Excessive levels of sugar in the blood can disrupt the work of blood cells which will release oxygen so that oxygen in the blood becomes reduced which causes hypoxia in peripheral tissues. Glucosuria causes the body to lose calories, causing a decrease in metabolic energy and malaise. The design used in this research is a cross-sectional approach. The population of DM patients at RSD Jember on average in the last 3 months was 160 patients. The sample in this study was 50 respondents. This study used a sampling technique of no-probability sampling with the Quota sampling method. Data collection in this study used oximetry and the DSS questionnaire. The data analysis technique used is the Spearman test. This study showed that most of the oxygen saturation experienced moderate hypoxemia as many as 20 people and the category of acute malaise was 1 person (2%), subacute malaise was 16 people (32%), and chronic malaise was 33 people (66%). Based on the results of the Rank Spearman statistical test, it is known that there is a relationship between oxygen saturation and malaise in diabetes mellitus patients at Balung Jember Hospital (p-value 0.000 α < 0.05). There is a relationship between oxygen saturation and malaise in Diabetes Mellitus patients at Balung Jember Hospital.
