i read that it won't be accurate when you move around Sad

Don't buy a pulse oximeter unless it is able to record data all night while you sleep, and comes with software which allows you to download the data and view graphs (plots) of the data, and it should allow you to save plots in .pdf format.

If using a finger-mounted pulseox, some adhesive tape can be used to secure the pulseox to the finger (but I think the tape should be a little loose, not too tight, so it won't apply too much pressure and make the finger sore).

i prefer to use a wrist-mounted pulseox purchased from Supplier #19. The wrist-mounted ones apply less pressure on the finger and are more comfortable to wear all night, and stay on well without requiring tape.

Take care,

I still dunno which one to get. So it's better to use the wirst-mounted type?
Is the CMS oximeter accurate especially if you move around when you sleep/suppressed?
Many shops don't ship internationally and so far from where i live. Sad

I have not thought you could buy CPAP machines from amazon, CPAP machines are prescription item
You don,t want an S9 with Escape in the name, Escape models are not data capable machines
