Sleepyhead ignore SPO2 drops
#1
When I'm sleeping, I roll over a lot, and when I do, I remove the Nonin 8800SL sensor and place it on another hand. This process usually takes seconds, but I'm wondering if there is any way to tell Sleepyhead to ignore these events? Sometimes when I switch fingers the software detects unusually high pulse rates > 200 and SPO2 drops.

Interesting point, k8tek. I'm pretty sure there is no way to tell SleepyHead to ignore certain events. I'm not familiar with your sensor setup; I have the wrist watch style CMS-50F which causes no problems. I assume you have a cable which goes back to a desk top recorder. Is the cable long enough that you could run it over the middle of your headboard? Of course you have to roll over with the connected hand on top, but there shouldn't be any recording artifacts that way.
BTW, I'm curious; would you describe your pulse oximeter for us, please?

ResMed A10 Oximetry Module (P/N: 37302), Nonin Xpod 3012LP and Nonin 8000 SL

It's the oximetry module that connects to the Airsense 10

The reason I went with this setup is because I was having problems getting the CMS 50D+ to sync the SPO2 events to sync up to the machine. Sleepyhead always seems to be off by a few minutes.

I'd love to post a picture of it on sleepyhead, but I don't have enough posts to do so.
