ABSTRACT Stress is a condition was effect whole body. The present study was carried out to investigate stress and its effect on oxygen saturation in peri-exam period. There were 91 students out of which 83 participated (19.2±1.0 year old) in the study.The oxygen saturation was measured in the morning (07.00-08.00) and in the evening (17.00-18.00) for 3 days during the prereview, review and exam periods. Prior to examination, the Perceived Stress Scale questionnaire was used to measure stress. The score range was from 0 to 56 and these points were used for stress. Firstly, the oxygen saturation recorded respectively when the prereview period was 97.29±1.67, which decreased to 97.24±1.52 in the review period (p>0.05). Secondly, the oxygen saturation recorded respectively when the prereview period was 97.29±1.67, which decreased to 97.14±1.71 in the exam period (p>0.05). And lastly, oxygen saturation recorded respectively when the review period was 97.24±1.52, which decreased to 97.14±1.71 in the exam period (p>0.05). That is to say, even though there had been a decrease in oxygen saturation for 3 days, it wasn't found significant difference among measures in terms of oxygen saturation. When socio-demographic features were examined;It wasn't found any significant difference among age, gender, number of siblings, monthly income, place of residence, smoking status and exam phobia and stress (p>0,05). It was found that the stress score of students (27.50±7.85) was low. Stress with low level did not affect on oxygen saturation(p>0.05). Low level of academic stress is not important marker for respiratory functions.
