Patient monitoring themselves at home

Ep 21. The power of pulse oximetry during the pandemic, Matt Inada-Kim, Irem Patel & Catherine Dale

The pandemic caused our health service to have to innovate and adapt, and with restrictions and risk limiting the number of patients we brought into our clinics, some key health responsibilities and monitoring had to be handed over to the patient.

On Episode 21 of NHE’s Finger on the Pulse podcast, we are joined by guests Matt Inada-Kim, Irem Patel and Catherine Dale to discuss the work being done in south London around pulse oximetry.

With the backing of the Health Innovation Network South London, the AHSN covering this part of the capital, the three were able to work to identify the potential that pulse oximetry could have for patients and scale it out to empower patients to monitor and work collaboratively with clinicians on their care.

Not only did it reduce the impact of disrupted clinical services, but it also helped give the patient greater autonomy in their own health.

But, perhaps like many of us - and even our some of our guests in the early days - what does pulse oximetry actually mean?

Find out that and much more by listening to this fascinating episode of NHE’s Finger on the Pulse podcast below:
