RE: Pulse Oximeter CMS-50D+
I tried it one night on my middle finger and the results were very inconsistent. It kept saying the finger was out and it would keep going back to the "searching" mode with blank lines instead of numbers. No clue why. So I only use the index finger.

RE: Pulse Oximeter CMS-50D+
Paula, i tend to use it on my third finger, but I have a scar on my index finger due to nearly slicing the finger pad off completely during a surgical accident when my knife slipped (scalpels are SHARP!) that would mess with the readings anyway. Common practice is the middle finger of the left hand, but in theory, any finger should do - the best way to find out which fingers work for you is to simply try to get a reading on each finger while awake for, say, 1 minute per finger; the fingers that all read the same are likely to be the one where you get your best and most consistent reading, the others usually either don't fit right or have calluses or scars that prevent a clear reading. And ALWAYS tape the fingerling with some sort of surgical tape (Fixomul is the best for that, J&J stretch tapes work pretty well, too) or it will slip in the night. The instruction manual for the device is useless. Actually, mine without one, and the manual on the accompanying disk was pointless. Good thing I knew how to use them anyway....
