Pulse Oximetry Link Module Help
#1
Question 
Pulse Oximetry Link Module Help
I just received my Pulse Oximetry Link Module, Xpod, finger sensor for my Dreamstation earlier today. When I went to insert it I realized the DME provider has the Cellular Modem located there. I pulled it out and set it up. I got the SpO2 screen so I know it's good to go. 

However, I have 2 questions please and Thank you in advance for you help.

#1. Is unplugging the Cellular Modem from DME at night an issue? (I want and need to know my O2 since I have Nocturnal Hypoxemia issues)

#2. How do I get the SpO2 levels from machine? ( Manual reads only DreamStation BiPAPautoSv, BiPAP S/T and BiPAP AVAPS will show on screen)

P.S. I've been on Cpap since September 2019 so I'm still a newbie but learning from all the posts in this forum.

Download and use OSCAR that will show the data.

RE: Pulse Oximetry Link Module Help
Thank you. I downloaded OSCAR and just printed my first overview report. (Lots of information I wasn't shown at my Provider, so I'm learning what it all means today)   I will use the program again tomorrow morning to get the Sp02 information from the card.

I have a follow up appointment in 2 weeks to evaluate my O2 levels to see if they need to do another overnight sleep study for the Nocturnal Hypoxemia and/or if they need to adjust titration, switch to BiPap or add supplemental oxygen to my Cpap therapy.

This forum has been so instrumental in finding answers my DME provider has been unable to answer.
