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.

Thanks to everyone for the reasoned and documented replies! This board is a great resource. I'm looking to order a monitor that records.

I bought a CMS-50D Plus and have used it 2 nights. The included paper instructions are so awful they are funny. I did discover that the vendor has decent instructions online, but have not read them yet.

I have no trouble keeping it on, because I use paper medical tape to my finger. I apply the tape so it does not increase the pressure on the finger, but just keeps it from falling off.

So far I like my readings. Going to try it while meditating an see what happens.

You should see a lowering of your heart rate during meditation, but not sO2sats. If you do, you are not meditating, you are sleeping.
