JAKARTA – One of the things experienced by Covid-19 patients is lowering oxygen saturation. Oxygen saturation itself means a measure of the percentage of oxyhemoglobin or hemoglobin bound by oxygen in the blood.
Under normal conditions the oxygen saturation level reaches above 95 percent. An oxygen level below 92 percent indicates potential hypoxia, which means a lack of oxygen reaches the tissues in the body
To find out how much variability in the oxygen level in the blood, you can use medical tools such asoximeter. Tool oximeteror commonly referred to as “pulse oximeter” oroximeterThe pulse serves to determine how efficiently oxygen levels are delivered to the parts of the body that are farthest from the heart, such as the legs and arms.
bracelet set (smartband) and smartwatches (smartwatch), currently many are equipped with oximeter features with more practical use. The Oppo Band smart bracelet, for example, has been equipped with oximeter to track the level of oxygen in the blood (SpO2) continuously, especially during sleep.
SpO2, known as oxygen saturation, is a measure of the amount of oxygen-carrying hemoglobin in the blood relative to the amount of non-oxygen-carrying hemoglobin. If the SpO2 condition is below normal it can be life threatening.
“The newest Oppo Band can detect early levels of oxygen in the blood. If the results of SpO2 monitoring show low oxygen levels, it is possible that we may start to be infected with the Corona virus or experiencehappy hipoxia,” said Oppo in a press release on Sunday (11/7).
To activate the automatic activation of SpO2 monitoring, you can open the HeyTap Health application atsmartphone, go to Manage then click More then click Exercise and Health, and enable or click Monitor SpO2 during Sleep.
In addition to monitoring SpO2, the Oppo Band can also monitor heart rate instantly (real-time). If any abnormality is detected, round-the-clock heart rate monitoring will remind consumers to proceed with caution by sending a vibrating alert.
The Oppo Band is also able to monitor sports training with the availability of 12 Training Modes, it can even be used while swimming and diving up to 50 meters. This device is supported by a battery that can last up to 12 days of use.
