What is Pulse Oximetry? 

Put simply, pulse oximetry is the measurement of the oxygen level or oxygen saturation (SpO2) - the amount of oxygen-carrying haemoglobin - of the blood.  It is used to show how well oxygen is being carried throughout your body.  As we breathe, we inhale oxygen into our lungs, which then binds it to haemoglobin that then travels throughout the body carrying oxygen. 

Typically a pulse oximeter is clipped on to the finger (or other extremity such as a toe or earlobe) to measure how well oxygen is reaching parts of your body furthest from the lungs / heart.  

Why is Pulse Oximetry Done?

Pulse oximetry is a very effective non-invasive method that can quickly identify any health condition that affects blood oxygen levels, including:

  • Asthma
  • Pneumonia
  • Heart conditions such as attack
  • Heart failure
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Anemia
  • Chronic Lung Disease / Lung cancer

What are normal SpO2 Levels?

According to Mayo Clinic, normal Sp02 levels are between 95% and 100%.  Anything below 90% is considered low.

What is the difference between Hypoxemia and Hypoxia?

Hypoxemia is defined as low levels of oxygen in the blood.  Hypoxia is defined as low levels of oxygen in the tissue.  If the body isn't able to maintain normal oxygen saturation levels this leads to hypoxemia.  Prolonged hypoxemia can lead to hypoxia, however they do not always coexist.

Oxygen Levels and COVID-19

According to a BMJ article: "In most patients who die of acute covid-19, the initial illness advances insidiously, sometimes with “silent hypoxia” (hypoxia without clinically perceptible symptoms of dyspnoea)".  

Personal pulse oximeters used in the home setting can detect hypoxemia associated with acute COVID-19.  However it is very important to note that home pulse oximetry is not a replacement for professional medical care and assessment.  It is crucial to consult your primary care provider, GP or visit the local emergency department if you have any concerns or are not feeling well.

Watch band great, perfect for withings watch. Customer service outstanding with clear communication and excellent follow up. Thankyou

Thank you very much for taking time to review the Genuine Leather watchbands for Withings. Thank you also for the feedback on FitTrack Australia's customer service and communication.

Accurate & Reliable

Had admission to hospital with exacerbated COPD during the past week. I measured my oxygen sats on my new oximeter ( purchased one week prior to admission)and the measurements were precisely the same as the measurements taken by the nurses using the hospital oximeter every time. My phone recorded the measurements and I was able to show the doctors /nurses the trends with comments, recording details of what I was doing at the time of each reading. That is not an option while using the hospital equipment. They rely on manual entries which are sometimes overlooked, not entered or inaccurate.

Thank you so much for the time you've taken to provide a very meaningful review of the iHealth AIR Pulse Oximeter. It is great to hear how practical and useful the ability to sync readings to the iHealth MyVitals app on the phone and have a record over time as opposed to manually recorded spot readings. It is no surprise that the measurements were in line with the hospital's pulse oximeter readings, as the iHealth AIR is clinically validated (independently tested) and is deemed a medical grade pulse oximeter. We really appreciate the excellent review, and we hope that you are feeling better now!

Very Impressed

This is a great and easy to use Fingertip Pulse Oximeter. It's casing is strong and it comes with a good carry pouch and cord. I'd recommend it to anyone.

I have found this Oximeter easy to use and it seems to perform well so far. I have only had it for a couple of weeks. I am hoping it will help friends and family who are at risk of severe COVID and I hope it will continue to perform well for a long time.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the iHealth AIR Wireless Fingertip Pulse Oximeter. As a medical grade TGA approved pulse oximeter you can have peace of mind that it is a high quality blood oxygen saturation monitor as is trusted by doctors and medical professionals throughout Australia.
