Pranavayu is an initiative where #BBMP doctors at Urban Primary Health Centre Fever Clinics will monitor patients using pulse oximeter. This helps them track walk-in patients with fever & #Covid19 symptoms as they progress from Influenza Like Illness to SARI, especially those with commodities such as cardiac problems, hypertension, lung issues etc.
'Pulse Oximeter' is a simple medical device that measures and displays oxygen saturation in the blood and heart rate of the patient. This would enable them to detect respiratory distress well in advance to start treatment and mitigate the risks early.
