This is the next post in the new VigR Chat series.  This series is created by the Friends Life Care Wellness and Care Coordination team.  Linda Hnatow, Care Coordinator and Registered Nurse, presents on pulse oximetry — an easy, no-needle test to measure the amount of oxygen in your blood.

“Oxygen is the Gas that Makes your Body Go”

The question has been asked if having a pulse oximeter in your house is necessary during the COVID crisis.  This webinar video explains the importance of oxygen in your blood, what a pulse oximeter does, how to use it, and whether you could benefit from having one.
