The recent impact of the new coronavirus pandemic has increased interest in oxymeters, which measure blood oxygen levels.
These portable devices can help you understand the amount of oxygen carried in the blood without piercing the body with a needle.
Usually when there is a decrease in oxygenation in the blood people soon notice the symptoms, but in coronavirus cases this does not happen. Most patients diagnosed with COVID-19 do not realize they have the symptom.
The ideal in these cases is the use of the pulse oximeter, device that when placed on the finger will give you the level of oxygen saturation in your blood. Remembering that the ideal is that the saturation is above 95, if it falls is indicated to look for a hospital. It is therefore important to have an oxymeter at home and to monitor the health of your body in a practical and safe way.
A pulse oximeter is a small device that must be placed on the finger and connected or embedded in the earlobe, where a beam of light emitted by the apparatus passes through the blood (in a finger or lobe) measuring the percentage of oxygen transmission and frequency cardiac (pulse).
