Wrist oximeter compatible with oscar- which one to buy?

RE: Wrist oximeter compatible with oscar- which one to buy?
What version of software and hardware are on your watch? There should be an option in the menu that shows this.

If it's 2.x I can send you the URL from my version for drivers and software
If it's something different, you may be able to upload straight from the device to OSCAR

Either way, you probably need drivers (if they didn't come with the device and there's no URL/QR code). It may be that you got one of the last of the older batch, which does allow you to upload directly to OSCAR.

It shows:

Hardware V. 2.0.0
Software V 2.0.5

I got it in Dec. 2020 from Amazon. Not sure what vendor.

OK, that's the new version. There's definitely not a sticker inside the lid of the box with a URL and QR code?

If not, I'll DM the details from mine.

pholynyk clued me in as to the software download:

Quote:Torontek has a B400 pulseOx which is the same as the Contec CMS50F. They give a software link as

http://torontek.com/downloads/Smart%20De...0Setup.exe

and note that it is Windows only.

And then Ratchick pointed out that there is a label inside the box... When I looked, the software download was right there LOL!

http://www.dlsoftw.com and the index code is 01GS4016

And then I got an email response to my chat request on the contechealth web site:


Quote:Dear friend,nice day!

Thank you very much for choosing our product!
 
Here is the website and index code of the software,please download it online.

http://www.dlsoftw.com
Index code:01XVF019

Hope it helps!
Kind regards!

I was feeling pretty sheepish for not noticing!

Ratchick also helped out with a basic explanation:

Once you have that downloaded, you shouldn't need to change anything (except maybe the time and date - though you can correct that in OSCAR too).

By default, it should be set to autostart recording as soon as you turn it on. If that's the case, all you need to do is put it on and turn it on at the same time as you start your CPAP.

Then in the morning, turn off your CPAP and take the pulse ox off your finger, long press the button to get into the menu. If you want to turn it off for now, you can use short presses to get down to the option to power off and then long press until it switches off. I'd also recommend turning off the alarms because I can't stand it beeping at me endlessly if you turn it on with the finger out warning, but you may find that useful at night because I find it slips off a lot for me, even with a little tape to hold it steady.

When it comes to getting the data, you need to make sure you have installed the software and drivers - the install package that is linked in the box. I get around the issues with save location by simply running it as administrator (if you can do that) on a windows machine. You then simply plug the USB cable from your CMS50F to the USB on your computer, turn on the watch. It should chirp (your PC) to let you know it found the device.

In the software there are two main icons. Click on the left one, that looks like a serial port (not the folder one) and it should bring up a dialog box. Make sure USB is ticked at the top, and that auto is selected. Then down the bottom, if it hasn't already found the device, press refresh and that should find your device. Select your device in the list by clicking on it, then make sure the box at the bottom that says "View Device Stored Data Only" is checked, then click on connect. It should download the data from your watch and prompt you to save it. Go ahead and do so, and then, when you are done, that's it.

Leave your oximeter plugged into the USB while you're doing your thing to charge, then go to OSCAR and import the .spo2 file through the oximeter import dialog. Hopefully, in the future, we will be able to import directly from the pulse ox directly in OSCAR but because of the hardware and software changes, we have to do it this way for now.

The software is pretty strange and cranky -- it's the typical sort of software that hardware engineers write. Made even more um *charming* by the fractured English of the menu options and explanatory text.

Hmm yeah it looks like the "code" they use changes - it may be just dependent on the exact production time, or it may be to limit multiple downloads for some reason, or it may be to ensure correct drivers and so on... But hopefully if you don't find the box, one of these options will work.

Actually all 3 places download

Smart Device Assistant V3.1.0.1 Setup.exe

Like I said, I was pretty sheepish when I realized it was inside the box lid :-)

Oddly enough, the two versions just mentioned have different lengths. Just what the differences are will have to await transferring them to my Windows computer.

RE: Wrist oximeter compatible with oscar- which one to buy?
Aye, I'm sure they include the same program - though potentially different drivers included with the install package, as it's not JUST the software that you install. But yeah, I'm unsure why they necessarily use the three different codes if the contents (including driver versions) are exactly the same - unless it's purely about tracking batches etc. 

As long as it's working correctly, that's the main thing.  Cool
