How does it do that, since the Oximeter does not write data to your card, does it?
For the ResMed S9 AutoSet with the ResScan software, you have to have the VERY EXPENSIVE ResMed Oximetry Kit to be able to do that.
That graph comes from someone who was using both a CPAP machine and a separate pulseox. SleepyHead will work with the CMS 50-D+ oximeter and some other CMS models.
The CMS-50 D+ can be had for less than $100 shipped in the US. Be sure to get the "PLUS" model, there's a CMS-50D that is cheaper, but doesn't have a computer interface.
You may have to hook the pulseox up to your computer while using the CPAP, or you may be able to record the data into the pulseox and synch it up later. I've used it hooked up to the computer while sleeping, but the other way may be possible, too. There may be some fiddling necessary to synch the timestamps of the oximeter
The CMS pulseox data is NOT recorded on the CPAP machine's SD card. You have to hook the pulseox up to your computer separately.
I don't know whether SleepyHead will use the directly attachable S9 oximeter data off the SD card.
