What is a good oxygen Oximeter

I have been on CPAP therapy for nearly 2 years and still feel very tired, I have been to hospital a couple of times in that period and the first thing they do is put me on oxygen.  So I have decided to invest in an Oximeter to assess my oxygen levels.  So any advice would be helpful.I am currently on a ResMed automatic machine, I have tried different masks and liners which I was told by my clinic were not helpful for CPAP as the leaks can escape through the lining and I wouldn't be aware of…See More

Kath Hope replied to Andy Falconer's discussion First night with CPAP
"Hi Andy. That's a good first night and sounding positive already. You may find your AHI comes down over the next few nights. Ideally we're looking for it to be up to 5 which is classed as 'normal.'  Your other goods will be…"

First night with CPAP

So last night was my first with my new CPAP machine (a Philips DreamStation with an Amara style mask), and got on surprisingly well. It took me a while to fall asleep and woke briefly a handful of times in the night but I would say it was very…See More

"Thanks for your answer Kath. The app I have is Philips Dreamapper . It tells me minimum/maximam/ 90% pressure, My AHI and mask fit, Hours usage. I cant see anything about obstructive or centrals. Is my app out of date, or my machine?"

Kath Hope replied to Judy Y's discussion Could I have developed Central Sleep Apnoea ?
"I don't think those symptoms are specific to central sleep apnoea.  Your app should tell you if those apnoeas are obstructive or  centrals.  It sometimes says 'CA.'  Sometimes when people first wake it takes a…"
