Yes they have been discussed quite a bit in this forum and a lot of people in Australia suffer from allergies and asthma which could also be monitored by a pulse oximeter although I think more obvious symptoms would normally develop before any significant oxygen reduction could be detected.

I bought a wrist device once, that was suppose to record oxygen levels as well as sleep quality, but I never trusted it so now it's abandoned on a desktop in another state.

For many people too much information fuels unnecessary stress and anxiety so I don't normally dwell on medical things but I have been refused release from hospitals on a number of occasions because my oxygen levels were way too low, so I thought the device might give me a clue as to how to avoid being detained next time.

My conclusions were that the device can't be trusted, for me it's probably normal to suppress breathing when I am in significant pain, and I don't want to live my life focused internally, perpetually worried about my health.

The marketing practices for medical things under our present circumstances interests me more than the devices themselves.

It's hard to tell at what point normal business management and pricing strategies become a form of extortion or gouging.

Of course governments opening their treasury vaults and competing aggressively against each other doesn't help.

It seems that, for good or ill, this microscopic virus has shaken our world in more ways than we can possibly comprehend.
