Oximeter with many users
#1
Question 
Oximeter with many users
Is it wise to buy an expensive and good oximeter with more people? For example with three users? It would be a week in turn for everyone. Or would two weeks alternate better? Or should I buy it only for me and use it all time? The point is that once the oximeter has good values, they will continue to be good. Or are there surprises in use?

RE: Oximeter with many users
With the exception of a very few individuals, constant ose of an oximeter is not needed. To periodically check when an individual is known to have issues with maintaining a proper and safe oxygen level is common sense. The period of checking is not as important as periodically verifying proper oxygen levels.

My choice of oximeter would be one that integrates with the OSCAR software so the results can be correlated to the event results for treatment adjustments.
