I unfortunately am positive for coronavirus. Since the world has practically collapsed, it is nearly impossible to get hands on a true Oximeter that measures you blood oxygen levels. The doctor in the hospital told me to download this app to keep track of my oxygen. It’s kept saying I’m 96 to 99 for my SPo2. I was having a hard time breathing deeply, with semi-rapid breathing and had to call an ambulance. They took my blood oxygen with a REAL Oximeter and it was 92. Pretty low and no where near what this app was reading. I’m glad I didn’t put too much stock in it and kept an eye on myself otherwise. I didn’t wind up going to hospital anyway either, they’re really only taking the super sick. However, this is zero percent an app to rely on for a true reading.
I have major anxiety and with COVID is has been hard. Last week I thought I was short of breath and went to the ER. Super scary because right now that is the worst place to be. Once they measured my oxygen I knew it was anxiety and not something more serious. My oxygen at the ER was 97. After watching a COVID video today I started to feel short of breath again. Normally don’t pay for apps but I purchased this app and it read 97. I also tested my heart rate with a bunch of apps and it appears to be accurate. Thank you so much for making this app. This can save lives by not putting more people at risk. I hope this review is helpful and I pray everyone out there stays safe. Please wear masks everyone. Covid is 100% airborne
I downloaded this app to help me check my oxygen level. I was having tightness on my chest and a little short of breath. I used it and wasn’t sure how accurate it was. Later that evening I went to the E.R. as my breathing got a little more intense and when I was hooked up to the vitals machine I decided to compare the results in the app with the screen the machine was hooked up to and to my surprise it was very Accurate. It was only off by about 1 or 2 numbers for both oxygen level and BPM. My oxygen level on the screen said 99 the app said 98 my BPM said 89 the app said 91. I did it a few times and pretty accurate every time. Thank you for creating this app. It definitely helps and works great.
I am a retired physician, Professor of medicine. Pulse oximetry was standard on my Samsung android phone but not my iPhone. The choice now was expensive fingertip oximeters or this app.
The readings are easy and quick. Pulse numbers pretty well match the pulse recorded by my Cardio app. Oximetry bombers match my numbers recorded at my Dr’s office. From a resting value of 97, my pO2 increases to 99 with hyperventilation as it should. So the app probably records a accurate baseline pO2 and changes appropriately to over breathing.
Now the real test, will it warn me of danger If I get sick, Ovid-19 or any other lung disease. All of my testing suggests it will.
I am an Emergency Department APP and I am currently on home quarantine at first I was very doubtful but since all stores sold out of home O2 finger pulse ox’s I tried it and I find it is quite accurate and reassuring to me as to when I will further management
It is user accurate meaning hold finger lightly over light if does not come repeat in slightly different position
For pulse rate take your pulse manually or use your smart watch you will find pulse varies a little but pretty good
Either it’s the triple lens or my small fingers, but after wasting a half hour on this, I give up. Others have had similar issues on similar apps with the multi lens issue. One would think the developers would warn potential customers rather than frustrate, waste time and earn a poor rating.
Instructions are rudimentary sketches that seem intentionally vague. Why isn’t there a photo of how exactly someone’s finger should cover the lens and flash at the same time?
1) Heart rate on the app is telling me it’s >250. I have a series 4 iWatch that shows me my ECG at 112.
2) No feedback on how hard/soft to grip the flash/camera.
3) Never got a decent pleth for the pulseox to gauge whether or not it’s an accurate reading.
0/5 stars would be appropriate if it were an option. You might as well take a $5 bill out of your wallet and throw it in the fire. This app is GARBAGE!
I got this to ease my anxiety with the ongoing COVID-19 mess. I figured if I could spend $5 on coffee when I could actually go get coffee, it wouldn’t hurt to spend it on an app that I can keep. Well, I did what was suggested here in regards to not covering up the lens/light too hard. Sure enough, it worked as intended. I’m happy with it and it seems to take my pulse similarly to my Apple Watch. Give it a try!
I bought this app because I am COVID-19 positive and was diagnosed also with pneumonia- and I wanted to find a home pulse oximeter to check my O2 levels- this one seems to vary widely- just a minute ago I checked and it said 95 - then 93- then when I restarted it 100. And the HR hardly ever registers. Don’t know if there is something I could be doing different- but I feel like I wasted my money.
This is amazing. Thank you to the inventors. I used the app after it was recommended by a nurse practitioner during my telemedicine visit as a way to tell if I needed to go to the hospital to be put on a ventilator for pneumonia. I was very happy and relieved to see the oxygen saturation was still high even though I felt like I wasn’t getting any oxygen. I am now on the road to recovery.
