Hong Kong, 30 March 2022 – The health awareness of people in Hong Kong is growing in tandem with their rising standard of living. With the continuous spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, people are putting more emphasis on healthy living and nutritional habits to upkeep their health and wellness level. Prevention is better than cure. Paying attention to the health conditions of everyone in the family is essential.


The vast majority of elderly, pregnant women, children and chronically ill people are avoiding clinics, hospitals, and other high-risk places due to safety concerns. In light of this, medisana, a German healthcare brand that was officially launched in Hong Kong today, has introduced a variety of medically certified health monitoring products, including the “Home Health Trio,” – pulse oximeter, blood pressure monitor, and infrared thermometer – allows users to easily monitor health conditions at home. With the medisana VitaDock+ app, users can check the measurement records anytime and anywhere. Founded in Bonn, Germany, medisana has been providing 360o personal health management products to consumers for over 40 years and is a leading expert in the field of healthcare.


Close Monitoring Of Oxygen Saturation To Reduce Risks Of Acute Conditions

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, many people have gotten hold of thermometers to provide further precaution for their own and their families’ health. According to the statistics, coronavirus patients commonly experience not only fever, dry cough, and exhaustion, but also low oxygen saturation (SpO2) and high blood pressure. As a result, blood pressure monitors and pulse oximeters are vital health monitoring devices for all households. Many diseases, in fact, have no visible symptoms but can cause hypoxia, and hypoxia is often difficult to detect with the naked eye, therefore it is referred as the “silent sign” or “happy hypoxia”. Regular measurements of oxygen saturation (SpO2) can detect the presence of hidden symptoms, allowing for the early detection of potentially life-threatening conditions. SpO2 levels can be measured in individuals with cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, or other chronic conditions to detect progression of the disease early.


Too low a reading of SpO2 reflects the possibility of heart, circulatory, asthma or lung diseases, which includes shortness of breath and reduced oxygen levels in major organs, and may lead to organ failure. In addition, people who aged 60 or older, work more than 12 hours a day, engage in mountain climbing or extreme sports, and are alcoholics should pay extra attention to their oxygen saturation level (SpO2). When compared to other pulse oximeters on the market, the medisana PM 100 is a certified medical device by the EU Medical Device Directive and employs Korean sensors with thorough quality control to ensure the high accuracy of all goods.


“Home Health Trio” – Prevention is Better Than Cure

Furthermore, studies have shown that the COVID-19 vaccine is helpful in lowering the risk of serious illness or death in infected patients, but this does not mean they are entirely immune. To prevent the infection, it is critical to wear a protective mask and to wash hands frequently. It is also crucial to form the habit of checking body temperature, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation (SpO2) on a regular basis with the medisana “Home Health Trio.” When the body temperature reaches 37 ℃, the systolic is greater than 140 mmHg, the blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) is less than 94%, and other vital signs are persistently abnormal, it is important to seek medical assistance as soon as possible to avoid worsening.


Check Blood Pressure Frequently – Beware Of Hypertension And Pre-Eclampsia Symptoms

Not only is it critical to monitor blood pressure throughout the pandemic, but pregnant women should never disregard high or unstable blood pressure readings. Women are vulnerable to a variety of physiological changes and possible risks from the beginning of their pregnancy, specifically gestational hypertension and pre-eclampsia, which can be fatal to both the mother and the fetus. Gestational hypertension is more prevalent and usually appears in the middle and later stages of pregnancy (after around 20 weeks), with nearly 20% of pregnant women globally suffering from the ailment. Pre-eclampsia, commonly known as toxaemia of pregnancy, is less common but can be fatal, affecting approximately one in every 1,000 pregnant women in Hong Kong. Pregnant women, particularly those with gestational hypertension and pre-eclampsia, should always keep a blood pressure monitor at home and measure regularly to ensure that their blood pressure does not exceed 130/90 mmHg, or falls below 30/15 mmHg of the basal blood pressure to protect their health and that of the baby.


During pregnancy, especially if the person has pre-eclampsia, the blood volume and vascular condition alter dramatically from those before pregnancy, necessitating the use of a high-accuracy blood pressure monitor. The MTP Pro Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor from medisana has received clinical approval in London, UK, and is the first clinically recognized electronic medical device for home usage. It is appropriate for people who have fluctuating blood pressure and pregnant women, particularly those who have gestational hypertension and pre-eclampsia.


VitaDock+ App – A Full-fledged Digital Health Diary

The medisana “Home Health Trio” is a health guardian for every household. It helps to monitor the health status of each individual to prevent problems before occurring. Some products are Bluetooth compatible. Users can access their measurement records at any time and from any location by simply connecting to a mobile device that has the medisana VitaDock+ app installed and synchronizing the measurement data to the app. The VitaDock+ app is a full-fledged health diary, with all measures shown in clear charts and graphs and a note-taking tool.


The medisana PM 100 Pulse Oximeter, MTP Pro Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor, BU 586 Voice Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor (with voice function), BU 580 connect Bluetooth Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor, and TM 760 Infrared Multi-Functional Thermometer are now available on medisana’s official website, as well as in-store at Mannings, Watson, local pharmacies, FORTRESS, Broadway Lifestyle, and other selected locations.
