What is an Oximeter?
Your blood oxygen level usually sits between 95-100%. However, studies have shown that these levels often drop dangerously low in Covid patients, without them noticing. This is known as “silent hypoxia.” As a result, patients reach hospitals in far worse conditions than they initially thought. This can result in their condition being too far advanced to treat them effectively. Oximeters shine a light into your body to measure how much of the light is absorbed. This is used to calculate oxygen levels in your blood. Its portable nature helps you to react to changes in your health quicker, monitoring your vitals at home or on the go.
You are advised to check your oxygen levels three times a day. If your oxygen levels drop to 93-94%, you should call your GP or 111. If your level is lower than 92%, you should call 999 or make your way to A&E. When it comes to portable electronic healthcare devices, everyone should consider purchasing an Oximeter. This is especially true in the case of high risk individuals. If not for yourself, why not buy one for your loved ones?
Further benefits of the Oximeter can be found within this interview with BBC Radio 4’s Inside Health.
What is a Careway Pain Reliever?
A Careway pain reliever is a handheld device that delivers small, painless electrical pulses through electrodes placed on the skin. These pulses interrupt pain signals that are sent to the brain. Subsequently, they encourage the body to create pain-relieving chemicals, or endorphins.
This battery-operated device provides easy instant pain relief in problem areas such as your shoulders, joints, your neck and your back. The Careway Pain Reliever is recognised as a safe pain relief method. Consequently, Pharmacists, Doctors and Physiotherapists across the country recommend this device for effective pain relief. Additionally, as endorphins are natural painkillers, it will not conflict with your usual pain medication. This means that you can use it for topical pain relief everywhere you go.
