Temp, pulse, BP and O2 sats depending on home equipment. Interpret self-monitoring results with caution in the context of your wider assessment.
Note change from previous
Helpful tool to indicate disease severity when available, especially if available at beginning and can monitor change.
If previously healthy lungs or previously documented normal O2 sat – a new consistent background reading of < 92% is a red flag
If underlying lung disease with documented low normal O2 sat at baseline – a new reading of < 90% is a red flag If patient on home oxygen normally and their O2 requirements increase with COVID illness – this is a red flag
