Oximeter app iPhone ( Apple Watch sensors are capable of measuring blood oxygen )

Masimo iSpO2 (Lightning Connector with Small Sensor for Apple iOS Device) 

From the leaders in pulse oximetry, the ISPO2 pulse Oximeter allows you to noninvasively track and trend blood oxygenation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), and perfusion index (PI) - even during movement and low blood flow to the finger. With the free Masimo ISPO2 application, you can graphically view your SpO2 and PR measurement history over time and share that data through email. The ISPO2 features the same Masimo SET technology found in hospitals worldwide. The ISPO2 will be useful to anyone interested in measuring blood oxygen and pulse rate, such as hikers and climbers, as well as pilots and passengers. Not intended for medical use. SIZING: For sizing, we recommend the Large size for people over 66 pounds. The Small size is recommended for those under 110 pounds. If you are between 66 and 110 pounds, we recommend the Small size if you have slender fingers.

The Pulse Oximeter app 

The Pulse Oximeter app measures both Heart Rate and Oxygen Saturation. The app integrates with Apple Health. There's no need for an external device. YOUR PHONE IS ALL YOU NEED.The Pulse Oximeter app is for use by sports users who are interested in knowing their blood oxygenation level (SpO2) and Heart Rate. The Pulse Oximeter app is NOT INTENDED FOR MEDICAL USE. The Pulse Oximeter app can be used in a wide range of settings, including between exercises, running, hiking, and in relaxation management.

Pulse Oximeter uses your iPhone’s camera to detect your pulse and oxygen levels from your fingertip. Track and record heartbeat and blood oxygen levels. Instant results, easy to use, simple charts to save your progress.
Whether you are training, doing simple exercise, or just monitoring stress levels, download the App today and use your camera's flash to monitor your progress!Place the tip of your index finger on the iPhone’s camera, and in a couple of seconds your pulse and oxygen levels will be shown. Results are also recorded in a graph.

How next Apple Watch could help save coronavirus patients

The novel coronavirus disease is seemingly at or near its peak in many countries. After that, life will return to some degree of normalcy, although we’ll have to keep our defenses up at least until a vaccine is widely available. Social distancing measures might ease, but we’ll still have to keep washing our hands often, wearing masks, and avoiding crowds. The coronavirus can’t be eradicated just yet, and outbreaks are still possible.

Some expect a second big coronavirus wave in the fall, but the next time around, authorities won’t be caught by surprise. And by the time the next major COVID-19 epidemic happens or any new illness caused by cousins of these coronaviruses arises, we may have a new weapon at our disposal: The Apple Watch Series 6.

The most common COVID-19 symptoms include fever, fatigue, cough, and shortness of breath. Right now, the mild-to-moderate cases are to be treated at home, as hospitals are overwhelmed with severe cases that need immediate attention. And while some patients might not experience any symptoms, others could face a tough battle. This particular passage attracted my attention a few weeks ago when The New York Times deputy editor Jessica Lustig detailed her stressful and tiring experience treating her husband at home (emphasis mine):

Now there is too much rushing back and forth, making sure T has a little dinner — just a tiny bowl of soup, just an appetizer, really, that he is unable to smell, that he fights nausea to choke down — taking his temperature, monitoring his oxygen-saturation levels with the fingertip pulse oximeter brought by a friend from the drugstore on the doctor’s advice, taking him tea, dispensing his meds, washing my hands over and over, texting the doctor to say T is worse again, standing next to him while he coughs into the covers, rubbing his knees through the blankets.

I told you that I started recording my temperature readings a few weeks ago, even if I don’t have any symptoms. My thinking is that if I got the disease without showing any signs, these readings might help. If I do get it, the spike in temperature that I measure should inform me that something isn’t right. But you can’t measure cough or fatigue objectively, and you need a pulse oximeter to measure your blood-oxygen levels.

That parameter is even more important than your temperature readings when it comes to saving your life. The oxygen-saturation level is what will convince your doctor to move you to oxygen therapy in the hospital and then to a ventilator. That’s because patients who suffer from severe cases of COVID-19 are literally fighting to get that oxygen in. The virus buries itself in the lungs, where it takes over individual cells to replicate itself, destroying the lung tissue in the process.

A leak in early March claimed the Apple Watch Series 6 would come with a sensor that could measure blood-oxygen levels. In other words, the most popular wearable in the world could feature exactly the life-saving feature that many coronavirus patients could use.

COVID-19 isn’t the only disease that will affect blood-oxygen levels, and the Apple Watch could catch other illnesses that affect your breathing as well. But in the very near future, the next Apple Watch could detect oxygen saturation changes as they happen and sound the alarm. In the case of future outbreaks where hospitals might be overrun, a device like the Apple Watch Series 6 could mean the difference between life or death for some patients.

A similar concept is already in testing in Cleveland, Ohio, where a team of researchers created a pilot program meant to catch changes in blood oxygen levels. Some of the patients who aren’t sick enough to be admitted are sent home with a device that looks like this:
