My oximeter CMS50I is very sensitive to hand movements, is yours the same ?
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.

plus sleepyhead doesn't filter. it's a lot cleaner in it's own software
For new auto cpap users. From machine data or sleepyhead, it is suggested to initially set the max CPAP pressure higher (1 or 2 cm) than the 95% pressure. The minimum a little lower than the median pressure. This will get you quickly into range. Fine tuning can be done from there, with the help of the forum.
