ResMed Oximeter Adapter, Anyone Use One?
#1
I am curious if anyone uses the ResMed Oximeter adapter and if it is only able to be used with the NONIN Xpod or can it be used with others?

Thank you for reply. I have the CMS 50D+ but can't figure out how it works the data into SleepyHead. Can the data be uploaded directly into SleepyHead or do we have to somehow import it from the CMS 50D+ software?

Hi Paula, I read through the link and everything seems to work but I got a message from SH that says the timestamps are different. I believe my problem is the "zooming in" part. How do I zoom in to get the exact start time? Thanks!

No clue about that message.

The oximeter doesn't know what time you started, only that you turned it on and 8hrs later you turned it off. You have to turn on the record at the same time you turn on your machine. But that's not why you got that error since, as I said, the oximeter doesn't know time.

Hopefully someone else can answer that question!

Okay. I did start them at the same time but can't figure out in the "Importing and Syncing the Oximeter data...", step 2 Determine the time the CPAP was started by zooming to the maximum detail and noting the start time (e.g. 4/3/2012 22:41:46).
Does anyone know how to Zoom in to get the exact time so I can sync correctly?

OH! Duh. Silly Paula.

The first graphic on the Daily page should be the "Event Flags", right?

Go to the next one, any one really, and just keep left clicking as close to the left end as you can until it won't zoom in any further. Then, use the left arrow key to go all the way to the left. That first number on the time is the time you started.

Hi Paula, I still can't get it to sync. I did what you told me and that worked fine. Left over, found the start time, 23:47:50. But I think because I started my session on the 24th and uploaded the data on the 25th it won't work. Not sure??? Any suggestions?
