Pulse Oxygen Sensor
#1
Hi,

I've just joined and WOW! What an amazing resource and bunch of people. So glad to have found this.

I have an initial question. My doc says that my oxygen levels are still low despite being using the Dreamstation with a full face mask. I have decided to purchase a sensor myself. I was wondering if the CMS 50D1 or 50DL will work with sleepyhead? I know the original 50D works but I understand some of the newer models format their data in a different way.

Any advice welcome.

Thanks.

My go-to guy on pulse-ox devices is Kevin -- Supplier19. He has answered all of my questions straight up and without hesitation. He has my enthusiastic recommendation.

The CMS50D+ and CMS50E are finger-tip sensors that work with SleepyHead. I prefer the wristwatch style CMS50F, which also works with SleepyHead.

The CMS50DL does not record pulse data, and can not send to a computer. At the current time, SleepyHead also does not support using the Bluetooth on the -W models.

As mentioned above, Kevin at Supplier #19 has been very helpful.
