Telemonitoring Program

Welcome to the Mount Sinai National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute Telemonitoring Program. You have experienced a serious illness and we understand that recovery at home can be stressful and difficult. We can help to ease your transition from hospital to home through our partnership with the patientMpower mobile application that provides remote vital sign and blood oxygen monitoring for COVID-19 survivors.

We provide a digital Nonin© 3230 pulse oximeter with Bluetooth technology prior to discharge. This will be paired with the patientMpower application downloaded on a mobile device. You will use this application and pulse oximeter to log data about your symptoms. The Respiratory Institute team will monitor your information entered into the application daily. This information will include:

  1. Oxygen Saturation (the level of oxygen in your blood)
  2. Your heart rate
  3. Whether you are feeling breathless

You will need to log this twice per day at 9am and 3pm. You may use the device more than twice daily, but it is not necessary to open the app other than at 9am and 3pm. It is important that you are logged into the application for the data to be transmitted to the clinic. The types of symptoms that you can record are limited to breathing abnormalities, so if you have other symptoms or concerns, please contact your doctor or call 911 in an emergency.

You may use the pulse oximeter more frequently, but monitoring is only available from 9am-5pm

You will be contacted to follow-up with a pulmonologist at the Mount Sinai National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute within 2-6 weeks. Please bring your pulse oximeter with you to your first in-person visit.

We look forward to supporting you in your recovery.
