What oximeter works with Sleepyhead?
I have an oximeter that communicates with my iPhone, but what should I buy if I want the results with my Sleepyhead software?

Basically it's the CMS50 series, models D+, E, F, and I. To see the complete list, go to the oximeter import screen and look at the drop-down list of supported oximeters.

RE: What oximeter works with Sleepyhead?
The two which are easiest to use (or have the most users) are both from Contec, the CMS-50D+ and the CMS-50F. The first clips on a finger easily, and can slip off while sleeping. It also has no clock, but starts a timer from zero each session. The F model (which I have) has a finger cuff, which can't slip off, and connect to a wrist watch style computer - which is bulkier than any Rolex I've ever seen. It has a built-in clock. Both only store a single session, and are available from Supplier #19 in our list above, as well as the usual on-line outlets.
Having a clock is not a great advantage, because the clock in your ResMed drifts differently, so you have to start recording with either one at the same time as you start the CPAP, and use SleepyHead to synchronize the two times.
Some Contec models have Bluetooth, but SleepyHead can't connect with Bluetooth at the present, as far as I know.
The E and I models mentioned by Crimson Nape above don's seem to be available from US suppliers, but are available from overseas.

I wish I had bought the one that records more than one night. It cost a little more but would be much less work when you start not wanting to download it every day.

Sleep-well

I agree with you, kwhenrykerr.  I bought the "F" model and then purchased the "I" model.  Except to correlate readings, I haven't used the "F" model since.

NEW PRODUCT
CMS 50D PLUS FINGERTIP PULSE OXIMETER WITH REMOTE SENSOR
The best value and most comfortable recording pulse oximeter available on the market today . Get all the benefits of the low cost CMS-50D Plus device with the convenience of a comfortable, dependable finger sensor. No more trying to ensure the oximeter does not fall off your finger during overnight recording sessions. With the addition of the remote finger sensor, the oximeter can be placed up to five feet away from the sensor. This allows the device to be placed on a night stand or other nearby location. The result is an easy-to-use and wear monitor that won’t fall off causing the loss of valuable data during monitoring.

sonicboom, where did you read this info on the CMS 50D Plus? Nothing was mentioned about the oximeter being able to be placed on a nightstand? I looked for it at Supplier #19's website.

Its not on our supplier list but if you google the model number and include the remote sensor in the search you will find it. If you can't locate it just PM me.
