Pulse Oximeters Minimises Virus Deaths In Delhi

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday termed pulse oximeters as 'suraksha kavach' that have helped minimise virus deaths of patients who are under home isolation in Delhi.

A pulse oximeter is a device that measures blood oxygen level. According to health guidelines, Covid-19 patients need to be hospitalised if their oxygen level reaches 90 per cent or below.

So, the Delhi government has provided pulse oximeters to asymptomatic and mild symptom corona patients undergoing home isolation.

"Delhi has been able to minimise deaths of Corona patients in home isolation thru this suraksha kavach called pulse oximeter. If patients detect their oxygen is falling they reach out to us for help. We immediately send oxygen concentrators to their home or take them to a hospital," tweeted Arvind Kejriwal.
