Apache Tribe’s Innovative Approach Lowers COVID-19 Deaths

"When the medical team at the Indian Health Service identified people suffering from happy hypoxemia, they tried something simple: detect it early and oxygenate patients at home. They would visit people’s homes, check their symptoms, and use one of the simplest and cheapest medical diagnostic aid devices: a pulse oximeter that measures oxygen levels and pulse and costs as little as $12.

By just paying home visits, accompanying people for a short walk through the house or the patio with an oximeter on their finger, were they able to detect hundreds of cases early, manage them with less aggressive therapies and at a lower cost. Above all, the approach created a surprising outcome. Although the Tribe has one of the highest levels of contagion, due to the work of the medical team, it has one of the lowest death rates in the state and the country."
