non recording pulse oximeter
#1
if you want a cheap non-recording pulse oximeter to spot check pulse and o2, go to supplier 19 in our supplier list at the top of this page. click on "on sale now" and go to the bottom of that page for a $20 pulse oximeter. this is the same model as the first pulse oximeter i bought and i paid alot more than $20. it's a good one.

Thanks for posting this, Bill... I won't be purchasing one just yet, but I'm sure others will be interested at that price.

Isnt that a bit silly? How are you going to check your O2 when your sleeping? The whole point of an Oxi is to check your O2 while sleeping but if you cant record then how are you going to know? Thinking-about

ok, come back to earth a bit. it probably goes against your sleepy thinking, but not all people need or want to record their o2 levels all night. some people like to "spot check" their o2 levels and pulse when they feel a need. this is exactly why i bought my first one, which was this model, before i ever got the notion of recording it overnite.

this little thing that i own does a good job and is accurate because i checked against the doctor's oximeter. this is the cheapest price you're going to find on a good oximeter.

look, i know you said you don't have a good sleep schedule and don't always use your machine, but you don't get a pass to come out of nowhere and call my legitimate post, silly. Annoyed-and-disappointed

As an initial part of an appt with several of my docs (not just a sleep doc) the nurse uses such a non-recording oximeter before I even "see the man". If it shows a bad reading, which COPD can cause it to do, it is part of our discussion. Obviously useful for other than recording, at least to my docs.
