GX distributes pulse oximeters throughout the Hong Kong community

As part of its COVID-19 emergency anti-pandemic programme, GX has distributed over 9,000 pulse oximeters to 12 organizations across the city. Experts at our foundation have conducted training on the proper usage of pulse oximeters at home, to empower the city's residents with the capacity and knowledge to provide home-based care for COVID-positive patients, particularly vulnerable elderly people.

Pulse oximeters are portable, re-usable devices that can monitor the blood oxygen level in COVID-infected patients. Encouraging its use at home can reduce unnecessary hospitalisation, while indicating whether professional care is required.
