The Resmed oximeter that plugs into the S9 is expensive. Well over $1,000 last time I checked. Supplier 19 (I think) has several to choose from. The one I got was $179 top of the line CMS 50i recording, good for several nights. Plug it into computer with its own software that is easy to use. Does not yet work with Sleepyhead.

It's normal. You might also find that you get an ache in your back right between your shoulder blades. These are the result of your lungs and diaphragm getting used to operating under a higher-than-ambient pressure. Sort of like when you first start lifting weights and your muscles get sore. But eventually it will go away. Mine actually took about 2 months to fully subside.

Hi dbvanhorn.
Welcome

The next thing to look at is what pressure your S9 is scheduling for you.
Can you get that from SleepyHead?

It will help isolate a lot of problems like Hi-Lo limits that might need to be set so you can get better comfort
while still getting decent therapy.

Cheers!
