Pulse Oximeter Use in COVID-19



 


Lifebox has partnered with ALIMA and others to develop the Pulse Oximeter COVID-19 Decision Making Tool to help clinicians during the COVID-19 pandemic. It uses oxygen saturation measurements from a pulse oximeter to determine when oxygen support is needed. The tool was created as guidance for frontline providers in low-resource settings working with patients with respiratory compromise and suspected or confirmed COVID-19. This tool is meant to be downloaded and shared widely. Send any comments or questions to covid@lifebox.org. Please see additional resources below for using and cleaning the Lifebox pulse oximeter.

For WHO clinical guidance, please see the Clinical Care Toolkit for COVID-19.

Thank you to Drs. Chris Brasher, Janet Diaz, Hamish Graham, Eric McCollum, Darin Portnoy, Susan Shepherd, and Tom Weiser for putting this together.
