COVID Oximetry @ home

COVID Oximetry @home (CO@h) Service

As your first step towards recovery from COVID-19, we welcome you to our COVID remote monitoring service.

To be referred into the service, you will need to have had a call with a member of our team who will have taken details from you.

At this point, the team member will inform you which pathway you will be in and as a result how/if you need to record your pulse oximeter readings, and how often to contact us.

Please note the following key points and information:

  1. Pulse oximeter readings should be taken once a day at minimum (the exact number of times will be agreed on the referral call.
  2. The settings on your pulse oximeter may differ to the one shown in the information leaflet. If you're unsure about the display and readings, please check with this the CO@h team.
  3. If your symptoms get worse, please contact the CO@h service or NHS 111 or 999, as the patient information leaflet (see below) advises.
  4. You can contact the team on 0300 111 2519 - the phone is manned 24/7, however the service's operating hours are 08:00 - 20:30.
  5. You will remain on the service for a maximum of 10 days from the onset of your COVID symptoms. You may be discharged earlier than this, but a clinician will inform you of this.
