Carenow Healthcare has claimed that through their CarePlix Vitals app, readings of the absolute oxygen level in the human body can be taken accurately.
Pulse oximeters have become a necessary part of our daily lives. Indeed, oximeters have become as important to us as smartphones in recent years. Pulse oximeters are now exceedingly expensive as a result of increased demand, to the extent where you’ll need to spend at least Rs 1800- Rs 3,100 to get a good oximeter for your home needs.
There are many free applications available that promise to help users track their vitals, including SpO2 or blood oxygen level and heart rate, for those who cannot afford such pricey oximeters. CarePlix Vitals is one such app.
Since this software cannot be equivalent to a licensed medical unit, we are unaware of the app’s accuracy.
The CarePlix Vitals app is available on the Apple App Store for iOS users. This app promises to monitor the blood oxygen level, respiratory rate, and heart rate. User needs to cover the rear camera and flashlight with their finger. After a few moments, the app will display the oxygen level, heartbeat, and respiratory rate.

Conclusion: Careplix Vitals is good or not?
I used the app to monitor my blood oxygen levels along with a branded pulse oximeter. I found, there was a slight difference between the app and the oximeter in readings of blood oxygen level (SpO2). The oximeter provided a reading of 100 while the app showed a reading of 98.
In my opinion, an app cannot match a Certified Medical Device, but still, this app has given a very good response and it also provides a correct reading to a large extent. I would like to say that this application should not be compared at all with a certified medical device. Hence you can use this app to check the primary reading of the daily oxygen level.
