Why Does The Prevention And Control Of New Coronavirus Pneumonia Require Real-time Detection Of Blood Oxygen Saturation?

2020/06/02

"New Coronary Pneumonia" is an acute infectious pneumonia. Based on the current epidemiological investigation, the incubation period of the disease is generally 3 to 7 days, and the incubation period is infectious.

In order to detect patients who become heavier early, the monitoring of blood oxygen saturation is important, because the monitoring of blood oxygen saturation is helpful to find patients who become heavier early, and give him early intervention in time.

If you want to intervene early, you must pay attention to the changes in blood oxygenation regularly. At rest (without exercise and emotional agitation), the blood oxygenation is less than 93% (at home recommended less than 95%), there may be lung infections, it is recommended to seek medical treatment immediately.

At present, there are two main types of pneumonia deaths caused by the new coronavirus: one is relatively young patients, these patients are respiratory failure, severe hypoxemia, and finally the respiratory function can not be maintained, this type of patients is relatively rare One thing; more of them are elderly. Hypoxemia in the elderly is not that serious, but pneumonia causes complications, such as coronary heart disease. Most elderly people die from these complications.

It can be seen that the monitoring of blood oxygen saturation is very important for the prevention and control of new coronavirus pneumonia, and it is a good helper for home monitoring and clinical treatment. It is recommended to always keep a blood oxygen saturation meter to monitor in real time and pay attention to lung health!
