Since the Covid-19 pandemic, many of us become more concern about our health issues, resulting in a greater understanding of how to remain healthy in these times, to the point where terms like "happy hypoxia" and "pulse oximeter" have become well-known terms across the social media platforms.

However, with travel restriction gradually eased, many people have already started to travel and outing with friends and family. Everyone is gathering everywhere as if a pandemic had never occurred and the Covid-19 positive cases remained high as usual. Even if you've been twice vaccinated, you should remain watchful because the Covid-19 virus is constantly changing and putting human lives at bigger risks than ever.

Using a pulse oximeter to assess your health on a regular basis at home is still highly recommended. Contrary to popular belief, this technique should not be limited to Covid-19 patients because a variety of other health issues might also alter your blood oxygen levels:

1. Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular conditions 

The buildup of fat on the inner lining of blood arteries narrows the vascular cavity and makes it difficult for blood to circulate freely. This has an impact on the efficient supply of oxygen to the body's organs and cells. The function of the heart, brain, and other organs that need high amounts of oxygen will gradually deteriorate over time. Sudden death will occur if oxygen is not provided in a timely manner. In such situations, using pulse oximeters to assess blood oxygen saturation on a regular basis can help to reduce the risks.


2. Respiratory conditions

Inadequate oxygen uptake can result from breathing difficulties, and recurrent asthma can block the narrow bronchial tubes. Hypoxia is caused by a difficulty in gas exchange, which damages the heart, lungs, brain, and even kidneys to variable degrees. When a pulse oximeter is used to closely monitor blood oxygen saturation, hypoxia can be detected early, considerably reducing the risk of respiratory tract disease. 


3. Seniors over 60 years of age
Organs lose their effectiveness as they age physiologically, resulting in insufficient oxygen intake and supply. Your physical state will normally diminish in these situations. As a result, elders should monitor their blood oxygen levels on a daily basis, and if they fall below normal healthy levels, oxygen should be provided as quickly as possible.



4. Long working hours over 12 hours a day

The oxygen demand of the brain increases in those who work long hours, and the oxygen supply cannot keep up. It can cause dizziness, weariness, poor memory, slow response, and other issues, as well as severe damage to the brain and heart. The worst outcome might be death from overwork.<


5. Athletes who engage in oxygen-intensive exercise and hiking
Athletes can benefit from real-time blood oxygen monitoring to better understand their blood circulation after intense activity or exercise in low-oxygen circumstances. This allows difficulties with oxygen or blood circulation to be identified ahead of time, preventing hypoxia from high stress.


6. Heavy alcohol consumption
To completely digest one unit of alcohol into water and carbon dioxide, the body requires three units of oxygen. As a result, hypoxia is one of the most common signs of intoxication; however, habitual drinkers develop a tolerance for alcohol and lack of oxygen, making it difficult for them to recognize when they are just slightly intoxicated.


Choose a pulse oximeter that has been certified by the authorities, such as JOYLEE® Medical Pro Fingertip Pulse Oximeter. JOYLEE should be your first choice for health monitoring equipment, including pulse oximeters, because all of its products are MDA (Malaysia Medical Device Authority), and KKM (Ministries of Health, Malaysia) approved for your peace of mind.
