Overnight Pulse Oximeter for Mac/apple/iphone
#1
Hi All.
I'm looking for a basic pulse oximeter that records data (so I can use it overnight).

I like the CMS-50F

But the only issue is that I only have a mac computer and a apple iphone.

Will this sync with my mac computer?

Do I even need a computer to get the data (I just want to see what my O2 levels do overnight).

Could I sync the CMS-50F to the ContecMed PHMS Iphone app?

If not, is there another device that would be suitable?

Thanks[/align]

The supplied software from Contec only works on Windows computers. The SleepyHead software use the Silicon Labs driver to read the data into SleepyHead and synchronize it with the xPAP data. There are reports that there are problems with the Silicon Labs USB driver and the latest (10.9?) OS-X system. If you have an older version of OS-X it will probably work.
There is a Bluetooth version: the CMS-50FW which may work with Macs and SleepyHead, although I have not seen any reports on this version.
I'm not too thrilled with Contec support and documentation, but they are almost the only devices that work with SleepyHead.
I doubt that the USB device will work with the Iphone app, although the CMS50FW Bluetooth version might.

Thanks for all of this.

It's kind of annoying huh!
Are their any devices out there that work with an iphone?

I found the masimo pulse oximeter - and that records to an iphone, but it's VERY expensive for what it does Sad

Oh and I should mention, I downloaded the PHMS contec app on my iphone. It's very buggy but it works. Does this mean I could use the CMS50FW Bluetooth or 50E + BT and sync it to me iphone?

And if so - would it sync the overnight graph?
Cheers

Late last year I searched the 'zon for pulse oximeter devices and the Play Store (I have a Galaxy S3) for pulse oximeter apps. I wasn't happy with anything I found there, for various reasons. The biggest problem with all of them was that I couldn't get the data into SleepyHead. Since I'm already using an xPAP machine, I wanted to try to correlate the oximetry events with the apnea events.
