A mobile app has come up to check blood oxygen level and pulse rate.

In today’s time, the demand for pulse oximeter has increased. In such a situation, a Kolkata-based health startup has recently developed a mobile app that can be used instead of an oximeter.

In the second wave of Corona epidemic, the discussion about the Pulse Oximeter in the country has become very fast. Actually, it is such a small device, which helps us to measure oxygen saturation level in the body. The health department periodically asks the oxygen level of the patients admitted in the home isolation, so that oxygen can be transported to the hospital in a timely manner. This is the reason why the demand for pulse oximeter has increased. The current situation is that there is a shortage of oximeters in the market. In today’s time, an oximeter has become more important than a smartphone in every household. In such a situation, due to increasing demand, manufacturers have increased the price of oximeter. For those who are financially weak, a Kolkata-based health startup has recently developed a mobile app that can be used instead of an oximeter.
