We are pleased to announce the formation of a new Pulse Oximeter gemach for our community.
A pulse oximeter device (also known as a pulse ox) is a small, non-invasive device that clips to your finger and measures your blood oxygen level and pulse rate.
One of the most important steps someone with Covid-19 symptoms can do is to monitor their oxygenation level to determine if their condition is deteriorating and further intervention is necessary. To learn more about the significance of monitoring this vital sign in those ill with Covid-19, please check out this article in the New York Times: The Infection That’s Silently Killing Coronavirus Patients.
To help in addressing this need the Kemp Mill Pulse Ox gemach has a limited number of Pulse Ox devices to be distributed to community members in need.
If you have Covid-19 and are not able to acquire a pulse ox device through other means, send an e-mail to PulseOxKempMill@gmail.com. The e-mail should include your name, age, contact information, description and history of your symptoms, risk factors, and any other information relevant to understanding your situation. Decisions regarding how to distribute our limited supply of devices will be based on a combination of factors.
For e-mails requesting a pulse ox device please put REQUEST [YOUR LAST NAME] in the subject line.
What else can you do to help? If you have the ability to donate additional Pulse Ox devices please contact us. Additionally, we could use a pack of disinfecting wipes. If you have the ability to make a such a donation please e-mail and put DONATION in the subject line.
May Hashem send a refuah to all cholei Yisrael.
