SpO2 last night
#1
SpO2 last night
The Oscar 1.1.0 beta2 imports well the oximeter data from CMS50F. Here is my SpO2 from last night. Is it too low? SpO2 drops 6,70 and pulse change 6,70.

An idea: Oscar could have an red line in chart which user can set (for example SpO2 90 %) like the leak rate 24 litres / minute in leak rate chart.

RE: SpO2 last night
unidee,
I believe that a reading dropping below 88% on a consistent basis would be something to investigate, but you only show a drop like that around 4:15.  I doubt that's anything to worry about.  

The best thing to do is show that graph along with the other therapy graphs, like event, flow and pressure to compare and see what was going on around that time.

You can add the dotted lines to your SpO2 graph.  On the left side of the graph, just right click and in the little window that pops up select dotted lines.
I believe the 'Lower Threshold" is user settable in Preferences > Oximetry.  It's typically 88%.

RE: SpO2 last night
Here is Oscar 1.1.0 RC1 statistics page (finnish). SpO2 mean is 91,56 %. Is that enough? Well... I don't trust oximeter made in China is very reliable.

Every time I've tried changing the SpO2 lower threshold setting it doesn't save the new value. Does it work properly on your computer?

Now that you mention it, no.  It does not save the settings for me either.  I tried it in the newer beta version with the same results.  I reported it
