How to share Oxygen Saturation Data using Apple Health

For your healthcare provider to remotely monitor your oxygen saturation (SpO2), you need to first accept their invitation, through email or the Qardio App. Once you are connected, your data will sync from the Qardio App back to their monitoring platform.

 

To share oxygen saturation data with your healthcare provider, you must allow the Qardio App to access your health data via Apple Health. To do this:

• Click the “Q” in the top left corner of the Qardio App to bring up the menu.

• Click “Settings” and turn on “Integrate with Apple Health”.

• The next screen will bring you to the Apple Health menu.

• Scroll down to the bottom section “ALLOW ‘QARDIO’ TO READ DATA:" and turn on category for Oxygen Saturation

** Please note that you will only be able to see your oxygen saturation data in the Apple Health app. You will NOT be able to view your integrated oxygen saturation data anywhere in the Qardio app at this time.

Once you have accepted the invitation for monitoring, your provider will be able to access your oxygen saturation data in one of two ways:

• Use an Apple Health integrated pulse oximeter, which can automatically sync your results with Apple Health.

• Use any pulse oximeter and enter your oxygen saturation data into Apple Health manually using Apple Health's 'Add Data' feature, as shown below.

 

Using an Apple Health integrated pulse oximeter

You can use any brand of pulse oximeter that is medically regulated and has an Apple Health integration. Read the manufacturer's specifications and look for the Apple Health icon. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on taking your measurement and turn on Apple Health integration with the connected pulse oximeter app. Your data will be automatically synced to the Qardio App and sent to your healthcare provider for remote monitoring.


Manually enter oxygen saturation values in Apple Health

If you are not using a smart pulse oximeter, you can manually enter your oxygen saturation measurements directly in Apple Health app.

For iOS 13.0+:

• Tap “Browse” tab at the bottom

• Enter “Oxygen Saturation” in the search field at the top and select “Oxygen Saturation” from the results
