From a lung health standpoint, aside from the objective pulse oximeter measurements, I suggest to my patients that if they're having any labored breathing, severe chest pain, uncontrollable coughing or dusky lips or fingers, it's time to go to the ER.
Some are recommending that COVID-19 patients monitor their oxygen levels at home with a pulse oximeter. A pulse oximeter is a small device that clips onto your finger and measures the oxygen in your blood. After placing the clip on your finger, you get a heart rate reading and blood oxygen level reading (it’s a little more complicated than.
A normal level of oxygen is usually 95% or higher. Some people with chronic lung disease or sleep apnea may have normal levels around 90%. The “SpO2” reading on a pulse oximeter shows the percentage of. oxygen in someone’s blood. If your home SpO2 reading is lower than 95%, call your health care provider.
If you have ever had a physical or visited a doctor for a medical procedure, you’ve had your blood oxygen saturation measured by a pulse oximeter. More recently, the spread of COVID-19, which can cause significant drops in blood oxygen saturation, has spurred a surge in the popularity of at-home pulse oximeters. (Some people who are worried they may have—or fear contracting—COVID-19, have purchased pulse oximeters with the aim of monitoring their blood oxygen levels.)
Pulse oximeters are a noninvasive and painless device that measures oxygen saturation levels in the blood . COVID-19 pandemic studies are finding increasing value in using pulse oximetry devices. Studies include the usefulness of oximeters in low-resource settings and predicting clinical deterioration (23, 24). A study evaluating 22 prognostic models for COVID-19 found peripheral oxygen saturation on room air and age was a predictor of clinical deterioration and mortality.
You will be asked for your oxygen level readings and heart rate by text message, and receive tips and instructions based on your response. To sign up, text “COVID” to 89888. Oxygen Level Guidance 90% or less This oxygen level is very concerning and may indicate a severe medical problem. Call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room immediately.
