Who can buy a Lifebox® oximeter?
To target the pulse oximetry gap directly, our oximeters are only available for use by clinicians and facilities:
1. Working in low and lower-middle income countries, as specified by the World Bank (listed here)
2. Serving a population of at least 20% low-resource patients.
If you fit these criteria, you can go directly to our purchasing page to get started.
If you work in a country where pulse oximetry is universal, or if you’ve had an operation in a facility where safe anaesthesia was never in doubt, please consider donating an oximeter to a colleague or facility in need. The global pulse oximeter market is projected to reach US$575 million by the year 2015, with US and Europe currently leading the market. This one-sided boom is increasing the pulse oximetry gap, and you can help redress it. Check out our donations page for more information.
