Oximeters and non-contact thermometers
« on: June 03, 2020, 09:35:36 am »
We are thinking of getting an oximeter and possibly one of those "Set Phasers to Stun" thermometers.

Are they all much of a muchness, or are there any models they the panel would recommend?

I paid ~£20 for a CONTEC CMS50D pulse oximeter from eBay, was recommended elsewhere and works well. Check the prices as there's a fair amount of price gouging going on, some are selling for >£40.

(I then happened to upgrade my Garmin watch to a Forerunner 945 so I have PulseOx measured every 15 minutes 24/7 but the other one is good for keeping an eye on the family.)

No idea about thermometers. I think the only one we have in the house is an ancient Calpol branded in-the-ear one that was last used probably 8 years ago. MiniGB is solidly built, she's only ever had 3 days off school/nursery in her life (now 10yo) and that was because she bit through her lip falling off her scooter - she's never missed a single nursery or school day through sickness.
