I mean, they all do spot checking, but I'm looking for one that will also download the data.

Why?

RE: Trending Oximeters?
Have a look at the CMS50EW; it is Bluetooth! About $110 give or take and mine works very well. Rechargeable and records. I also have two other CMS50E's that I am going to sell I think but could not resist the Bluetooth version. Have not looked to see the latest offering from Contec for a while but checked all three of mine against a hospital grade pulse oximeter and each was 'dead on' the same. (Wife works at a hospital). I bought them to record my SpO2 but ultimately needed them to record pulse rate as I came home with aFib from my hospital stay that took them over a year to diagnose. It's under control now and I'm in NSR all the time with the use of a wee pill called TIKOSYN from Pfizer, but I still leave the Pulse Oximeter on regularly to make sure nothing fishy going on while I am asleep. I love my CMS50EW. I match the start and stop times to my ResScan and stretch the scale to match. Quite interesting and very critical data I believe.

I bought the CMS50D+ thinking since it records it must do what I'm wanting. But the recording is mostly for sleep studies, which is what I have been using it for.

What I need is an oximeter that puts a time stamp on each reading. This way the software can create the appropriate graphs etc.

I've found the Onyx II 9560 and I think it will do what I need but it's way too expensive for me at this time.

Does anyone know of a less expensive oximeter that has trending software?

Thanks in advance!

The oximeter I use is a CMS P which is simply a finger probe with a USB plug on the other end of a longish cable, plus monitoring software. This unit records SPO2 data to a folder on your PC. The software allows you to see a trace on the screen showing PR, plus SPO2 data on the vertical axis and time on the horizontal axis. A separate file is created for each session which can be overnight or any length of time. Detailed reports can be printed off to take to your sleep doc too. I can recommend [link removed by moderator] as I've used mine for many years. The created file is in spo format which can be read by Sleepyhead. - Cost US$60.

I omitted to mention, the CMS P1 spo2 gives an instant readout on your PC screen in real time. Google CMS p1 spo2 for more info.

The CMS 50D+ does this as well. That is what the SpO2 Review software does. It will save the recording made in real time.
