The ME International board of directors is planning to provide Pulse Oximeters free of charge to its members that need one. The use of a Pulse Oximeter can be especially useful for people with ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). From the ME IC Primer: “A heart rate monitor can assist in keeping cardiovascular responses below the anaerobic threshold, resting heart rate is elevated in people with ME, and low blood volume can lead to elevated heart rate.” It helps to understand how ME affects the heart rate, therefore, we will provide a flyer with each Pulse Oximeter that will describe the importance of measuring heart rate for people with ME, and how to properly track it.
Please help us with this project so as many of our members as possible can better manage their activity and heart rate. Every donation to this fundraiser is intended to purchase and distribute the Pulse Oximeters. All donations made will be much appreciated. ME International board members, volunteers and staff receive no compensation for their services. Please DONATEBELOW now. We thank you for your consideration.

I would just like to say a very big thank you for the Pulse Oximeter that I have received today. It will assist me enormously with observing my heart rate and oxygen levels throughout the day and taking a break when needed. I think this is a great donation for those suffering with ME. Claire H.
... the pulse oximeter already is helping me, thank you so very much! I am very grateful for this generous gift. It is very important for me to check my blood oxygen level every morning and throughout the day. Thanks to you and ME International, I can do this! Cheryl
I received a pulse oximeter from you and I’ve been using it every day. It’s been so helpful to understand what’s happening with my body. I’ve been recording the stats to share with my doctor, and I feel so much more confident going in with actual numbers instead of “my heart races when I walk around my house.” Thank you so much for this invaluable resource!
