Subang Jaya residents receive 100 oximeters

USJ 9 RA and RT representative Anthony Gunapalan receiving a pulse oximeter sponsored by an anonymous donor from Ng.

AROUND 100 Rukun Tetangga (RT), residents associations (RA) and joint management bodies (JMB) of apartments in Subang Jaya each received a pulse oximeter for the benefit of residents within their communities undergoing Covid-19 quarantine.

Subang Jaya assemblyman Michelle Ng distributed the oximeters, which were sponsored by an anonymous donor, to representatives of the groups.

“We hope that this sponsorship will allow residents to have access to an oximeter when needed,” Ng said in a statement.

“The representatives were taught how to use the oximeter and determine a healthy body’s oxygen level.

“We have asked residents groups to inform their communities on the availability of such a device so residents who test positive for Covid-19 can request to use it.

“The oximeter will be delivered using a contactless method, by placing it outside the person’s house,” she said.

After a resident has completed his or her quarantine period, the device has to be sanitised and returned to the RT, RA or JMB to be passed on to the next user.

Ng said the oximeters, valued at RM79 to RM99 per piece, were meant for the Subang Jaya community.

“However, some residents’ groups, which are already equipped with oximeters, have informed us accordingly.

“We will channel their allocation to communities with a denser population.

“We hope the oximeters can help a patient provide accurate information to the hospital and ambulance services, if necessary.”
