My oximeter CMS50I is very sensitive to hand movements, is yours the same ?
Hi,
I have bought my first oximeter CMS50i and have noticed, that it is very sensitive to the hand (not the body, but the the hand) movements.

So it is enought to turn the hand with the sensor on the finger upside-down quickly a few times, and the heartrate waveform suddenly get distorted, drops out, starts showing some nonsense.

Is it ok to have such sensitivity ?

The finger probe is "touchy". Try different fingers. I've found my middle and ring fingers to be the most stable.

For auto-cpap, from machine data or software. You can set the min pressure 1 or 2cm below 95%. Or clinicians commonly use the maximum or 95% pressure for fixed pressure CPAP, this can also be used for min pressure.
