WHAT IS A PULSE OXIMETER:
A pulse oximeter is a small medical device that is put on the tip of the finger, to check someone’s oxygen levels.

Pulse oximeters measure blood oxygen levels by transmitting light through a finger – they are more accurate than smart watches or phones which make less accurate readings by reflecting light off the skin.

Pulse oximetry can help with earlier detection of silent hypoxia, where people have low oxygen levels in the absence of significant shortness of breath. This can help ensure more timely hospital treatment if required.

PULSE OXIMETER READINGS – WHAT TO DO:

If you start to feel worse or notice a change in your readings please follow the advice below;

1- No action needed if you have any following signs/symptoms or readings:
• Fully mobile, able to manage stairs, not confused
• Normal eating and drinking
• Oxygen level (measured with the pulse oximeter) is consistently at or above 95%
• Pulse Range 50-90 beats per minute

2- Ring your Doctor or 111 as soon as possible if you have one or more of the following and
tell the operator you have or may have coronavirus:
• You slowly start feeling more unwell or more breathless.
• You are having difficulty breathing when getting up to go to the toilet or similar.
• Unable to speak in full sentences due to breathlessness
• If you use a pulse oximeter, your blood oxygen level is 94% or 93% when sitting or
lying down, and remains at this level after being rechecked within an hour.
• You sense that something is wrong (general weakness, extreme tiredness, loss of
appetite, reduced urine output, unable to care for yourself – simple tasks like
washing and dressing or making food).
• Pulse persistently over 90 beats per minute at rest
• Not eating and drinking
• Fever not responding to cooling down and paracetamol.

If your blood oxygen level is usually below 95% but it drops below your normal level, call
111 or your GP surgery for advice.

3- Attend your nearest A&E or call 999 immediately if you have one or more of the
following and tell the operator you have or may have coronavirus:
• You are unable to complete short sentences when at rest due to breathlessness.
• Your breathing suddenly worsens within an hour.
• Your blood oxygen level is 92% or less. Check your blood oxygen level again straight
away – if it’s still 92% or below, go to A&E immediately or call 999.

OR if these more general signs of serious illness develop:
• you are coughing up blood
• you feel cold and sweaty with pale or blotchy skin
• you develop a rash that does not fade when you roll a drinking glass over it
• you collapse or faint
• you become agitated, confused or very drowsy
• you have stopped peeing or are peeing much less than usual.

If you have a pulse oximeter, please give the oxygen saturation reading to the 999
operator.

When the VA thought I might have sleep apnea, they arranged for me to have a home sleep study test. They sent me this kit from WatchPAT. It was the easiest, most simple device I've used in a very long time. This video first tells you how I used the machine, then I have included screenshots from the WatchPAT APP showing the step-by-step process to use this device. It was not uncomfortable to wear at all, and the next morning it quickly uploaded the data to their server and I guess VA had the completed report in 2 days, since they called me to set up a follow up appointment - which will be in October, but that' ok by me.The music in this video I purchased a license from POND5:Riding My Motorcycle by WAVEBRIGADE

In this video, I go over the difference between the negative symptoms of schizophrenia and depression with psychosis. I also define negative vs. positive symptoms. Eugen Bleuler expanded our understanding of schizophrenia by introducing the 4 As: Alogia, Autism, Affective blunting and Ambivalence. These 4 As are now called negative symptoms of schizophrenia. Positive symptoms refer to delusions, hallucinations and disorganized thinking or behavior. WANT TO START IN THERAPY?
