- How does the Blaux Oxi Level work?
Blaux Oxi Level is an advanced oxygen level measurement device similar to those in use in the medical field. Like those devices, it emits beams of light that passes through the blood. This process detects changes in light absorption between the oxygenated and deoxygenated blood. It is painless and non-invasive to use.
- Who could benefit from using the Blaux Oxi Level?
People involved in cardio training who are looking to improve their performance, or anyone starting a new fitness regimen can benefit from having an accurate method for monitoring their heart and blood oxygen rate. Those who suffer from chronic lung diseases like COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), pulmonary fibrosis, and emphysema should be monitoring their blood oxygen levels daily.
Anyone with heart problems or people involved in practicing stress management techniques will also find having a Blaux Oxi Level useful.
- What does it mean if I have low blood oxygen saturation?
Having low SpO2 (blood oxygen saturation) means your body is having problems distributing oxygen from the lungs to the cells and tissues. It can indicate any number of health problems. Symptoms may include chest pain, headaches, shortness of breath, confusion, restlessness, elevated heart rate, chest pain, and more. The sooner you know, the faster you can seek proper care.
- Do I have to have the Blaux Oxi Level plugged in for it to work?
No. The unit is powered by two easy-to-find AAA batteries.
- What does a healthy reading look like?
The easy-to-read OLED screen displays your heart rate and the estimated oxygen saturation content in your blood. A normal resting heart rate is 60 – 100 beats per minute for most adults. A reading of 95% and above is considered normal for oxygen levels, while 92% or less is cause for concern.
