She generally fees good and the CPAP treatment finally seems to be working so she is not to big on the idea of sleeping with yet another device connected to her.

A point to bring up is that with the oximeter, she doesn't have to use it every night, like she does with CPAP. Use it for a couple weeks to determine a baseline, and then use it as a spot check on a less frequent schedule... if you don't feel right, if you make a change to the CPAP settings, etc.
