Best Oximeter Device to use w OSCAR
Best Oximeter Device to use w OSCAR
My sleep study showed some low saturation levels and I am considering adding an oximeter device. I currently us an Airsense Autoset 10 apap, if that makes a difference

What is the best unit that works well with OSCAR?

Thank you

RE: Best Oximeter Device to use w OSCAR
If you are using Windows then either the Contec CMS50F, or one of the Wellue's, SleepU, O2 Ring, or Checkme O2 Max will work,

If you use Mac, the Wellue is the only one with software for Mac. You could always use a VM with Windows 10 and run both brands, but it may be overkill just to run one program. Your choice.

For both units you use the supplied software to get the data off the oximeter, then import it into OSCAR.

The Contec only stores one night of data at a time, so you need to download it every day. Tha battery lasts about 3-4 days. You use the supplied cable to get the data onto your computer.
The Wellue SleepU stores 4 days of data but the battery only lasts 2 days. The Check Me is supposed to last 6-7 days. These use Bluetooth to transfer the data to your phone or computer.
