To have oximetery data recorded on the S9 SD card , you,ll need ResMed oximeter-adapter kit (expensive setup) and ResScan
S9 oximeter setup video (2nd video)
Thanks this was very helpful. Does the Data Transfer device work with any oximetry device? ... It appears that if I get the Resmed S9 Oximeter adapter all the data from the oximeter will be load to the same SD card that loads the sleep data? thanks
The ResMed oximetry kit only works with the oximeter which is included in the kit.
The S9 Oximetry Kit is over US$1,000, and most DME suppliers will not be able to provide it to you. I got a prescription for the S9 Oximetry kit from my doctor and brought it to my usual DME provider, and they said they couldn't help me. The Oximetry Kit is really intended only for professional use in sleep studies and in doctor offices and the like. Later, I did find an online DME who would provide it, as long as a prescription was obtained. You can send me a Private Message if you would like to pursue getting the ResMed Oximetry Kit.
The CMS-50 recording pulse oximeters come with their own free software to display plots of the data. Data from the CMS-50D Plus model can be read by SleepyHead, but (last time I looked into it) other CMS models could not be. Nonetheless, I bought a wrist-mounted
CMS-50 model from Supplier #19
because the wrist-mounted type exerts less pressure on the finger and is less uncomfortable to wear all night. It is easy to use the CMS oximeter software to plot oximeter data, and then use ResScan or SleepyHead to look at my sleep data for that same time, to see what breathing event caused the O2 desat event.
