International Men's Health Week (IMHW) is here! CMI Health wants to highlight the importance of men's health as a way of increasing health awareness for men, boys, and their families. Recognition of common health issues can often lead to the prevention of worsening health conditions through the treatment of both acute and chronic illnesses. Early detection of preventable diseases is possible through acknowledgment of potential health threats and understanding their causes.
Lung and heart diseases affect a wide range of individuals across the globe and can often result in serious, if not deadly, side effects. This includes treatable illnesses such as pneumonia, bronchitis, or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and long-term diseases such as emphysema (a form of COPD) or lung cancer. Early diagnosis of such critical lung health issues is possible through the monitoring of oxygen saturation (SpO2) via noninvasive pulse oximetry. For both men and women of all ages, tracking basic lung health is a simple and effective way of monitoring their respiratory and cardiac performance.
Though pulse oximetry cannot specifically identify the cause of lung distress, it can show early signs of both infectious and autoimmune disease. Silent hypoxia, a condition in which an individual's oxygen levels fall without visible signs of distress, is often an early indicator of more serious conditions.
Monitoring lung performance periodically through the use of an affordable at-home pulse oximeter is an excellent form of preventative healthcare for all ages. As we have seen with the recent COVID-19 outbreak, retaining such a device may allow users to identify illness before they feel or see visible symptoms. It is important to always stay diligent when it comes to the health of you or your loved ones.
