Hello, I would like to purchase my own recording pulse oximeter to monitor my apnoea. I am in the UK, there are many devices available, some very cheap, but I want an accurate and reliable one. I want to export the data to a computer, maybe use SleepyHead software. Does anyone know of a good device that will do all that and is reasonably comfortable to wear?

Since very low blood O2 was one of my main concerns, I bought one from either eBay or Amazon; can't recall which now. The one I bought seems to be pretty accurate and records data during the night. It looks like a wrist watch and has a rubber bit that fits over a finger and stays in place during the night. The Pulse Oxyymeter does NOT work if you are moving around as that throws off readings.
