Oximeter Results
#1
Picked up a CMS 50D+ and used it for the first time last night. The results kinda scared me. I had 3 times when my SPO2 dropped into the Danger Zone. My AHI last night was only 0.5. I tried to import the info into Sleepyhead and screwed up the positioning and can't figure out how to delete the SPO2 info to get it to line up with the other data to see if there is any correlation with my AHIs. But here are the Pics looking for input. I wanted to add that I had a lot of mask leaks last night for some reason.

Well I wouldn't be happy with those numbers, but I would also not be scared. I have seen it go down to 60% with some people. That is scary to me.
Remember AHI is events per hour and does not take into account how long the apnea is.
Did you tape your CMS 50D+ closed on your finger? It "may" have not been seated correctly during that time.
were you having a bunch of apneas around that time?
What was your 90% pressure? Close to 12 most of the time or mainly lower?
