With advancements in technology, it has become possible for you to monitor your health from the comfort of your own home. Remote patient monitoring devices have made it easier to track your vital signs and share this information with your healthcare providers. In this blog, we will discuss how you can check your vitals at home using remote patient monitoring devices.
Blood Pressure Monitoring
One of the most important vital signs to track is blood pressure. High blood pressure is a leading cause of heart disease and stroke, so it is important to keep track of it regularly. The device will measure your blood pressure and provide you with the results on a screen or through an app on your smartphone.
Heart Rate Monitoring
Your heart rate is a crucial indicator of your overall health. A heart rate monitoring device can be used to track your heart rate continuously or at specific times of the day. Some remote patient monitoring devices also come with a heart rate monitor built into them, such as the Checkme O2 Max pulse oximeter, making it convenient to track heart rate.
Oxygen Saturation Monitoring
Oxygen saturation, also known as SpO2, is the amount of oxygen in your blood. Monitoring your oxygen saturation levels is important if you have a chronic respiratory condition such as COPD or asthma. An oxygen saturation monitoring device can be attached to your finger and will provide you with a reading of your oxygen saturation levels.
Temperature is another important vital sign that can be monitored at home. A high temperature is a sign of fever and can be indicative of an infection. Some remote patient monitoring devices such as the Checkme Pro Vital Signs Monitor also come with a built-in thermometer.
Empower your health by monitoring your vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen saturation, and temperature in the comfort of your own home.
