It’s that time of year again! As parents prepare for their children's return to school, ensuring their well-being in the classroom is of utmost importance. At CMI Health, we offer a range of innovative health monitoring devices that can be invaluable tools for families. By utilizing our monitoring devices, you can stay informed about your child’s health and symptoms - even in the classroom. 

Why Monitoring Your Child's Health at School Matters:  

  • Detecting Early Warning Signs: Children are often unable to articulate their health concerns effectively. Regular health monitoring at school can help identify any early warning signs of illness or discomfort, allowing parents and educators to take timely action. 
  • Preventing the Spread of Infections: Schools can be breeding grounds for infections. By closely monitoring your child's health, you can keep them home when necessary, preventing the spread of contagious illnesses to other students and staff. 
  • Promoting Academic Performance: A healthy child is more likely to excel academically. By monitoring their health, parents can address any health issues promptly, ensuring that their child remains focused and engaged.
  • Encouraging Responsible Habits: Teaching children to be responsible for their health starts with monitoring their well-being. When parents actively engage in health monitoring and regular doctor appointments, children learn to take their health seriously, leading to better habits and self-care practices in the future.


By monitoring your child’s health, you’ll teach them healthy habits and how to take care of themselves, this is especially important depending on the health conditions they may be facing. On top of the use of at-home health monitoring devices, a family health and wellness organizer can help parents stay on top of their child’s medications and doctor visits. It’s also crucial to set up a good routine for your child early in the school year that encourages a good diet and enough sleep.

One of the key advantages of our health monitoring devices, like SpiroLink® or our Pulse Oximeters, is their portability and ease of use. Our devices can continuously monitor or spot check vital signs like heart rate, lung capacity, and blood oxygen levels throughout the day. They can also transmit real-time data to compatible apps when connected via Bluetooth, allowing users to keep track of symptoms and trends over time. Whether it's a sudden flare-up or a drop in activity levels, you can receive immediate alerts and take appropriate action. You can even share your child’s health reports and trends remotely with their physicians - making health monitoring easier than ever.  


Overview of Our Best Devices for In-School Monitoring:

  • SpiroLink®: For parents concerned about their child's respiratory health, our smart, digital spirometer is an invaluable tool. The SpiroLink® monitors lung health, helping those with chronic respiratory conditions (like asthma or COPD) identify anomalies, trends, and even improvements in lung function due to treatment. 
  • Pulse Oximeter Devices: Our pulse oximeters measure blood oxygen saturation levels and pulse rate, offering accurate insights into your child's overall well-being. They are a great tool to use for spot-checking or continuous monitoring and even come with custom pediatric sensors to best suit your child's needs. 
  • Fingertip Pulse Oximeter: This compact and lightweight pulse oximeter device is built for portability, making it ideal for children that want to be discreet in from of classmates. It’s also splash proof, drop resistant, and battery operated, making it the perfect solution for health monitoring throughout the school day. 


Utilizing CMI Health devices empowers parents to stay vigilant, detect early signs of illness, and take timely action. By following basic health advice, parents can further contribute to their child's overall health and academic success. Together, let's make this school year a healthy and successful one!
