We are delighted to have recently started a new trial with the patientMpower platform for renal dialysis. Together with researchers in Beaumont Hospital, Dublin, Ireland, we are examining how the patientMpower app can help people undergoing renal dialysis to better manage their fluid weight gain between dialysis sessions. The trial protocol is available on clinicaltrials.gov.
One of the measurements you can track on the patientMpower app is your oxygen saturation(SpO2), which is measured using a pulse oximeter. Not all people using the patientMpower app currently record their oxygen saturation on the platform, and you may therefore be interested to know more about this feature.
At patientMpower, we’ve evaluated a lot of fingertip pulse oximeters to measure your Oxygen Saturation (SpO2) – an important objective measure for Pulmonary Fibrosis, IPF, and people with any lung disease. Here are our top 3 devices that we’ve tested.
patientMpower presented at the Artificial Intelligence Health2.0 Dublin chapter meetup hosted in January by Google and Verily. Eamonn Costello outlined the Machine Learning process patientMpower is employing in ‘cleaning’ and ‘training’ a real world spirometry data set. These data are contained within patientMpower’s “digital biobankTM“, which contains over 3 million Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) data points including thousands of Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) data points.
