COVID Oximetry @home involves the remote monitoring of patients with coronavirus symptoms. Patients use a pulse oximeter, a small monitor clipped to their finger, to measure their oxygen saturation levels three times a day.
They record their results using a smartphone app, web portal or paper diary.
The paper-based option is available at all sites for patients who are uncomfortable with or unable to use a digital solution to record their readings.
Patients are supported by clinical staff locally, so that if they need further treatment they can be admitted to hospital at the right time.
