Covid-19 and the importance of measuring blood oxygen saturation levels
Updated: Apr 4, 2020
Estimates from the CDC’s risk assessment predict most American’s will contract Covid-19 so it’s important we educate ourselves about what to expect and how to naturally assist recovery. One post-recovery finding we're already learning about is that medical experts say Covid-19 can damage lung function. The Hong Kong Hospital Authority made the findings after studying the first wave of patients who were discharged from the hospital and had fully recovered from Covid-19. “They gasp if they walk a bit more quickly,” Owen Tsang Tak-yin, the medical director of the authority’s Infections Disease Centre, told a press conference Thursday March 12, according to the South China Morning Post. “Some patients might have around a drop of 20 to 30% in lung function” after full recovery, he said.
Research completed in 2009 by Dr. David Verhoeven of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, showed oxygen blood saturation is the best predictor of lung function during an influenza infection. If you feel you’re getting Covid-19 symptoms, it’s wise to begin measuring your blood oxygen saturation (O2 sat) levels.
A pulse oximeter measures O2 sat levels, which refers to the extent to which hemoglobin is saturated with oxygen. Hemoglobin is an element in your blood that binds with oxygen to carry it through the bloodstream to the organs, tissues and cells of your body. Normal O2 sats are usually between 96% and 98%. Any level below 92% is considered dangerous and should be evaluated by a medical professional.
The CDC is recommending the use of nonpharmaceutical interventions as the most important steps individuals can take to stop the spread of Covid-19. The fast-acting products offered by Essential Energy assist the body to naturally raise O2 sats to normal levels. In repeated live demonstrations people who had O2 sats of 92-94 saw their level rise to 96 or higher, usually in under two minutes, though individual results may vary. In one extreme case, an 11-year old girl had an acute respiratory attack. While waiting for emergency services to arrive, she was gasping for air. He O2 sat level was a very dangerous 74. A 4" LightTower was placed over her chest with a mirror behind her facing the LightTower. Remarkably her level rose to 92 in under three minutes and she avoided an emergency situation. To assist her lungs ongoing, she now wears a Power Pendant and regularly sees her O2 sat level at 98 or even 99.
