Pulse Oximeters: As the second wave of the coronavirus epidemic intensifies in India, there is a need for people to continue to monitor their oxygen levels to ensure that, if necessary, they can get medical help immediately. However, during the first wave the world saw in 2020, there was an influx of various oximeters, and a lack of complete knowledge and variety of options has now left people confused as to which oximeters to buy. It is the same with oxygen connectors, and many people who want to buy them, so that they can ensure enough oxygen at home.

Here's what you need to know about pulse oximeters and oxygen concentrators: how they work, the difference and how to choose the best one.

Defined oximeter

A pulse oximeter is a remote device that painlessly monitors the level of oxygen in the human body in a matter of seconds. As advised by oxygen supplementation over 95% is considered healthy and adequate by medical professionals. The value of this device increased after the COVID-19 epidemic, as it is a respiratory disease and affects the level of oxygen in an infected person. In addition, as isolating an infected person at home is necessary in this situation, the need arose for devices to monitor oxygen levels easily even at home, and this void was filled with pulse oximeters.

Types of pulse oximeters and values

There are three different types of pulse oximeters, including fingerprint oximeters, hand-held oximeters and fetal pulse oximeters. It is important to determine the type of pulse oximeter you want before deciding which one to buy. Usually, people prefer to use a finger oximeter at home, because it is relatively easy to use and relatively cheap, while the other two types are used in hospitals and clinics (under different conditions) more often.

The finger pulse oximeter is usually a remote-like device, battery-operated, and intended for finger-pointing. The device then provides readings on oxygen supplementation or SPO2 levels, as well as heart rate.

A finger-drawn oximeter usually falls within a range of Rs 1,000 to Rs 5,000.

Things to look for in a pulse oximeter

When looking at a pulse oximeter, there are a few features one can look for, including clear and bright display, solid objects and accurate reading. To test whether the pulse oximeter has an accurate reading, the best way is to look at a few oximeters and compare their readings. In addition, one surefire way to detect if a pulse oximeter is wrong is if its SPO2 reading is above 100, which is an error reported at certain oximeters. Since the SPO2 reading is a percentage, it should not exceed 100.

Apart from this, if you want to buy a pulse oximeter online, reading customer reviews can also help in understanding the product better. Alternatively, if a person chooses to purchase a pulse oximeter at a local chemical store, they may also ask the pharmacist for a review.

There are also some certificates that all products receive before coming to market as a mark of quality. Users can check FDA, RoHS, or CE certificates.

Some pulse oximeter brands you should look for

Dr. Trust has been supplying fine finger oximeter pulses to the US FDA in India, providing an accuracy of up to 3%. Currently, ChoiceMMed also has fingerprint oximeter pulses in India, and these have US FDA and CE certificates. Apart from this, the US FDA-approved oximeter by Noymi Yobekan is also available in India and is known for providing the most accurate reading of SPO2. Apart from this, Vandelay, BPL, Dr. Morepen, Microtek, Elko and Meditive also offer the best quality oximeters in the country.

Oxygen Joints

Recently, there has been an outpouring of demand for oxygen concentrators, especially for COVID-19 patients who need oxygen treatment but cannot go to the hospital. But what are oxygen concentrators? These machines filter the air in the room, filtering only the oxygen in the air, while allowing nitrogen to return to the outside. This gives patients 90% to 95% oxygen, as in real air it contains only 21% oxygen, while 78% air is made up of nitrogen and 1% is left over from other gases.

Purchasing or renting oxygen concentrators depends on a doctor's advice, because they tell patients the amount of oxygen needed per minute, so a model is preferred. Oxygen oxygen concentrators are capable of providing 0.1 liter of oxygen per minute and even 10 LPM of oxygen.

However, it is important to understand that oxygen concentrators are not the same as oxygen cylinders and the former requires continuous power supply, ranging from 100W to 600W depending on the model.

Oxygen concentrators are available in 3 LPM, 5 LPM, 8 LPM, and 10 LPM units, and 10 LPM concentrators can be used to support two patients with low oxygen. While a 5 LPM unit costs between Rs 40,000 to Rs 60,000, a 10 LPM unit costs around Rs 1.6 lakh.

Buy oxygen concentrators

Users can purchase oxygen concentrators online, including e-commerce giants Amazon. However, the availability of oxygen concentrators anywhere - online or offline - can be problematic due to the sudden increase in demand. However, there are a few websites like 1mg, Nightingales India, Healthklin, and Healthgenie, which sell oxygen concentrators. However, consumers should be careful, as some websites also sell things like nebulisers and humidifiers instead of concentrator and attack people.
It is best to consult a doctor before buying a product. In addition, users can also ensure that they purchase products of reliable brands, such as Equinox, Oxlife, Inogen, Aspen, OCM, and Yuwell.
