Implementation of a pulse oximeter with measurement of altitude, heart rate (HR) and oxygen saturation (SpO2) with bluetooth communication, in the need of real-time as well as remote monitoring by the therapist with the purpose of avoiding the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. With the use of bluetooth technology, the data is transmitted in real-time to a mobile phone through an application in the Android operating system, a medical history record is generated using the MIT App Inventor platform, likewise an audible alarm is activated in case the saturation level is out of range, taking into consideration the variation in oxygen saturation depending on the altitude where measurement is taken.
