One does not need a prescription to buy a recording pulse oximeter, but check with your insurance company to see if getting a prescription would make it eligible for reimbursement. Must be a "recording" model.

The style of recording Pulse Oximeter which is worn like a wrist watch with separate finger cup sensor is far more comfortable to wear all night. Also helpful if it records Perfusion (which shows when the PO is getting strong/valid readings through the skin).
Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

To me, that suggests something more is needed.
