“As we find ourselves in the middle of another surge of COVID-19, it is critical that everyone have access to all available tools to assist in protecting their health,” said Heather Hasson, FIGS’ co-CEO and co-founder. “Regularly using a pulse oximeter is an easy way to help monitor your health and support the healthcare system.”

“An oximeter can be an early detection tool for respiratory problems, including from COVID-19,” said Dr. Cassie Majestic, Emergency Medicine Physician. “For purposes of COVID-19, you should seek medical care if your oximeter reading is consistently below 90-92%.”

The FIGS oximeter easily fits inside a bag or pocket so you can check your blood oxygen level and pulse regularly without the need for any large or heavy equipment.
