Please note: Very important that we not make the PO clamp tighter on the finger - not even the least little bit.

One piece of tape can be placed along one side of the finger, only to stabilize the PO from falling off.

A second piece of tape can be placed along the other side of the finger, only to stabilize the PO from falling off.

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

RE: Oxygen sensing and recording
I got my CMS50D from Amazon. It cost half of what a one-time DME-supplied SPO2 test did. And SleepyHead does better reports than what I saw the doctor received from the DME afterwards.
