Use this simple to use pulse-oximeter to measure oxygen saturation in your blood. Oxygen level SPO2 below a person’s normal range needs medical attention. Low oxygen saturation can be due to Anaemia (low hemoglobin), pregnancy related anaemia, reduced lung function or capacity in elderly or sick, lung infections and so on. This simple to use device runs on 2 AAA batteries and easy to carry and use. Just clip it on your finger tip and wait for a few seconds. You can see your oxygen saturation and pulse rate in real time.
Most people don’t have oxygen saturation of 100%, so a range of 95-99% is considered normal. Anything below 95% is an indicator of hypoxia – a lack of oxygen perfusing the tissues. There can be other reasons as well, showing ‘false hypoxia’ at times. Consult your doctor and seek medical assistance to understand the reason and take timely treatment.
