by the time you wake up the event has already passed.
That is how I was able to tell how bad I was doing while asleep when I first became supicious of having apnea.
Start out with the right equipment. It wont be cheap but you don't need to go overboard either.
Give your Walmart device to a jogger so they can check on their oxygen debt because that's what it is good for.
Now I have been on APAP a bit more than a year and I also use a dental appliance as well.
(You probably didn't want to hear that, did you...)
Good Luck and keep trying!
ResMed has an oximeter you can plug into the ResMed S9 which records and puts the data on your data card. Get your doctor to order it for you. I imagine ins will pay if you have a problem with O2 levels.
