Temasek Foundation will be giving out a free oximeter per household. Collection runs from 5 Jul to 5 Aug 2021.
Collection is available at the following supermarkets and pharmacies:
An oximeter is a medical device that measures your blood oxygen level and pulse rate. According to Healthline, Chaim Blackman said, “Pulse oximeters work by shining a light through the finger (or earlobe), and then measures the reflection of the light beam, how much light passes through, or gets reflected away from the sensor on the other side. Then, using a mathematical equation, oximeters are able to calculate how much oxygen is in the blood.”
Oximeters can cost up to $29 in stores.
A leaflet with a redemption tab will be sent to letterboxes of every household by 3 Jul 2021.
