This looks more like the fingerling shifted and produced noise. If this is something to be concerned about (and these devices are lousy for diagnosing even the slightest irregularity with heart beat, sorry - they just aren't reliable for that and pick up way too much noise - they aren't actually designed to act as more than a primitive pulse monitor, and not a good one that - their main aim is to record the sO2sat levels) you would need to wear a holter monitor. In the meantime, how are you securing the fingerling to your finger, and to which finger?
In addition, I would have needed to see the report and an expanded view of the incident to gauge how much time it took. But first view looks more like noise - you rolled over on it or whatever. Note that there is no spike in the sO2sats or degradation either....
Hmmm... is this an isolated incident or this every time you start to arouse? The spike happens for only a very short time, less than a minute (ignore the little high spike at the end, that is noise) and there is no significant change in the sO2sats, so if this is a one off, forget it. If this is every night, then you might need to consider having a holter monitor for a night to see if you can replicate it. It might be related to a blood pressure spike on arousal, or it may be nothing at all. Without an EKG, it would be difficult to tell, and even with an EKG, it may be within normal boundaries for your system (odd as it sounds).
