A pulse Oximeter is an electronic device which is simply put on the finger to get one's reading of pulse rate and oxygen saturation in the blood. In Covid times, this has become an essential gadget to be kept handy at home. A pulse rate of 60-100 is considered in the normal range. An Oxygen reading of 95 and above is considered normal. Below an oxygen level of 92, one should immediately seek medical help, use the oxygen cylinder or concentrator at home or rush to the hospital if there are breathing issues too. Many lives could have been saved in the Delta variant if people had oximeters and rushed to the hospital on time. Also, in these covid times, many of us panic with a viral type attack. The Oximeter gives us an indication of how serious we actually are.
