Pulse Oximeter Shortage: Where To Buy Pulse Oximeters In Australia?

Posted by FitTrack Australia on

Pulse Oximeter Shortage?

The current Omicron strain COVID-19 surge has put significant strain on hospitals, health care providers and supply chains leading to disrupted services and a shortage of essential medical supplies such as Rapid Antigen Tests (RAT), Pulse Oximeters and Non-Contact Infrared Thermometers. As one of Australia’s premier suppliers of TGA approved / FDA registered Pulse Oximeters & Thermometers, FitTrack Australia experienced unprecedented demand for pulse oximeters (such as the clinically validated iHealth AIR PO3M Wireless Pulse Oximeter) and infrared thermometers. Pulse Oximeters were selling out before reaching our warehouse in Sydney, and we felt the desperation from many customers who were themselves unwell or caring for their immunocompromised family members.

Where To Buy Pulse Oximeters In Australia Now?

Whilst many cheap pulse oximeters flood online retailers, the accuracy and reliability of these can be called into question. To discern whether a pulse oximeter can be trusted, it is important to ascertain the following:

  • Is the pulse oximeter clinically validated?
  • Has the pulse oximeter been certified or approved by the relevant local authority - eg is it TGA Approved, ARTG Registered or FDA (USA) Registered?
  • Is it trusted by doctors, clinics, medical professionals?

FitTrack Australia is an authorised retailer of the iHealth AIR PO3M pulse oximeter, which is a clinically tested, medical grade, TGA Approved wireless pulse oximeter, and is used throughout Australia by medical professionals, doctors and hospitals. This convenient easy-to-use medical grade device is an excellent pulse oximeter for home use, and has the option for advanced remote patient monitoring, so that measurements can be synchronized and shared with your doctor.

Does FitTrack Australia Have Any Other High Quality Pulse Oximeters in Stock?

FitTrack Australia is also a supplier of Jumper Medical pulse oximeters (which are FDA registered). The models include:


We also have numerous smartwatches capable of pulse oximetry such as the Withings Scanwatch range.

We encourage you to consult your health care provider if you are unsure or require further advice on the suitability of pulse oximeter devices for your health care needs.

Can I Purchase A Pulse Oximeter in Western Australia?

As Western Australia nears the opening of its borders, many Western Australians have asked if it is possible to get an iHealth AIR PO3M wireless pulse oximeter in WA? Yes - we do ship to all areas of WA, from Perth to Esperance to Broome, and even to the outback Gibson Desert Nature Reserve.

So Can A Home Pulse Oximeter Actually Save My Life?

In some countries, those who are infected with COVID-19 but whose condition has not deteriorated have been provided with Pulse Oximeters to monitor their blood oxygen saturation levels. This enables them to quickly discern a deteriorating condition and seek urgent medical help.

Another condition of concern that has been highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic is “Silent Hypoxia”. There have been numerous cases worldwide, in which people who have otherwise not exhibited symptoms such as shortness of breath or lightheadedness or other COVID symptoms, have presented themselves at the hospital only to discover dangerous low blood oxygen levels. Left undetected, Silent Hypoxia is deadly and many who have eventually ended up in emergency departments with this insidious condition have done so too late, as they weren’t aware of being unwell as they weren’t exhibiting obvious symptoms.

Having access to a pulse oximeter would enable those who are experiencing sub par blood oxygen levels to realise that their blood oxygen saturation levels are too low, even though they aren’t exhibiting any obvious symptoms.

Awesome Earbuds

Amazing sound quality. Great build and battery life. Easy to use and connect. For this price range, very hard to beat. Much better than I expected. If you like a crisp clear bassy sound, you'll love these earbuds. I can't understand how so much bass comes out of something so small. Highly recommend product.

Thank you so much for that excellent review of the Soundpeats Sonic bluetooth headphones! Of the hundreds of headphones we review and tests at FitTrack Australia, we are constantly blown away by the performance of Soundpeats headphones. They certainly punch far above their weight.

Soundpeats products

Overall I have bought 2 soundpeat products and I must say it is outstanding. Especially the small air3's which fit perfectly. Overall I most certainly believe soundpeats has the best sound quality and I urge other to buy their products

Love it!

So easy to use, neat and tidy. Connects to the app beautifully. Gives lots of very relevant information.

What a fantastic review of the Withings BPM Connect wireless blood pressure monitor! Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We agree - compact, easy to use. However paired with the amazing Withings Health Mate app, the power of the Withings BPM Connect is unlocked as blood pressure / heart rate logs are able to be recorded & logged for historical reference and new trends are able to be detected.

Love this watch

I haven't had my Steel HR Hybrid 36mm Rose Gold Smartwatch for very long but the short time I have I really love it.
It looks like a very stylish regular watch but tracks everything I need in a smart watch and motivates me to move more with the fitness tracker.
The watch is easy to navigate and having the incoming call and message notifications means you never miss a call or message.
I am very happy with my purchase, I love the look of the watch, the long battery life between charges, the ease of operation and that it doesn't look like a regular fitness watch.
I would definitely recommend

Thank you for this very detailed and informative review of the Withings Steel HR Rose Gold Hybrid Smartwatch. That is probably one of the best aspects of this hybrid smartwatch - that it looks just like a stylish classy high end designer watch, but is actually an advanced health monitoring smartwatch! Notifications are subtle and yet very useful eliminating many potential phone checks! Thank you for the great review!

easy to use, good price

Appears to work well so far - haven't really needed to use it properly.
Good price, good features. Arrived quickly.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review the Jumper Non-contact Infrared Forehead Thermometer. We agree - it's so easy to use, high quality and a very reasonable price.
