Beware of Fake NHS Approved Oximeter Claims

Updated: 4 days ago

  • The NHS does not approve or recommend specific pulse oximeters or other medical devices.

  • If someone is trying to sell you an "NHS approved oximeter," be cautious because it's not true.

  • In the UK, medical device manufacturers use a safety scheme called CE marking, which used to be known as the 'Kite Mark.' The MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) oversees the use of this mark. Soon, it will be replaced by the UKCA mark.

  • NHS doctors usually say, "you can use any CE-marked oximeter."

  • To learn more about oximeters and avoid fake NHS approved oximeter claims, visit our website.

  • You can download NHS leaflets, watch video guides, and find links to buy oximeters.

  • Using an oximeter can help keep you safe if you get a COVID-19 infection. Be sure to choose a reliable, CE-marked device rather than trusting false claims of an "NHS-approved oximeter."

  • Interestingly, the most bought oximeter by users of our site is the Kinetic. Presumably, people trust this brand due to the manufacturer's association with St John's Ambulance.
