Why is it important to use pulse oximetry blood oxygen monitoring?

Blood oxygen, refers to the oxygen in the blood, the higher the oxygen content in the blood, the better the person's metabolism. Of course high blood oxygen content is not a good phenomenon, the blood oxygen in the human body are a certain degree of saturation, too low will cause insufficient oxygen supply to the body, too high will lead to cell aging in the body.

One of the clinical manifestations of neocrown pneumonia, "acute respiratory distress syndrome", is a clinical syndrome characterized by intrapulmonary and/or extrapulmonary causes, with intractable hypoxemia as a distinctive feature.

According to the "Treatment Protocol for Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia" jointly issued by the General Office of the Chinese Health Care Commission and the Office of the Chinese Medicine Administration, a patient is considered to be critically ill when the finger oxygen saturation (blood oxygen saturation measured from the finger) is below 93% (about 98% in healthy individuals) and requires assisted respiratory therapy.

So blood oxygen monitoring is very important, especially because some patients with very low blood oxygen concentration do not feel it themselves yet and do not realize the severity of their condition, perhaps they are already critically ill, so some doctors recommend monitoring at home with a bluetooth pulse oximeter.

Who else needs pulse oximeter?

People who snore

Snoring belongs to one of the most occurring situations in most people's daily sleep and is often not taken seriously, but snoring may cause short or prolonged respiratory obstruction, which leads to lack of oxygen, thus reducing sleep quality and, in serious cases, organ damage.

People with excessive mental work

The oxygen consumption of the brain of such people in daily life or work is higher than that of ordinary people, and if the brain is deprived of oxygen for a long time, it will cause drowsiness, fatigue, drowsiness and poor memory and other phenomena. Often use the pulse oximeter to detect blood oxygen, to understand their physical condition, easy to adjust the pace of work and study and rest, to improve efficiency and state.

Senior people/people using ventilators

The physiological aging of the heart and lung organs of the elderly leads to less oxygen being transmitted by blood and is prone to insufficient oxygen supply. If blood oxygen is detected below the alert level on a daily basis, it should be supplemented with oxygen in time to avoid inducing other diseases.

Patients with chronic respiratory diseases

Patients with chronic respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, accompanied by shortness of breath, dyspnea and other symptoms, are prone to hypoxemia. Timely understanding of the body's blood oxygen content can prompt patients to oxygen therapy.

Therefore, it is very important to have a pulse oximeter at home! The TeleRPM Pulse Oximeter (BLE) 2022 is an important and commonly used device for checking blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) and pulse rate. It is a small, compact, simple, reliable and durable physiological monitoring device.
