Thank you for the Information. The main reason to look for the oxemeter is to check regular (i.e. each month) if the Level is still ok. because the insurance paies such check just once per year and it is inconveniant to get the equipment and bring it back. With a S9 oxymeter the main Advantage would be that the values ar stored for one year for the doctor. If it is too expensive I will look for another solution because I have to pay the oximeter myselve.
I have looked into this myself and found that the Resmed adapter is the cheapest component; around $130. The oximeter and finger sensor that will work with this adapter, which is the Nonin Xpod can cost $500-600. All in all, this addition can cost you as much as your CPAP machine. As mentioned above by PaulaO2, there is a much lower cost stand alone O2 sensor that you can import the data into Sleepyhead. To match the time between the O2 data and cpap data so it shows correctly in Sleepyhead; you need to start up both units at the same time.
Meanwhile I got an offer from my local Resmed. It is about 105 Euro for the S9 Oximeter Module, 180 Euro for a Softsensor and about 420 Euro for an Nonin XPod Oximeter, all in all 600 Euro (about 770 $) much too much. Does anyone know a soulution were I would use only the propreary Oxymeter module and other compatible and cheeper sensor and oximeter?
True, that's what Supplier 19 specializes in. If something exists to make bridge that gap, they would know.
I am going to invest in a wrist meter as the finger one has become too uncomfortable for me.
