Has anyone here used it? It has features that I want, but does it work as described?
Are both models the same?
I would like to find a fingertip pulse oximeter (or other device) that can monitor my breathing and oxygen levels at home while sleeping, preferably with Bluetooth. I have a Mac computer, and many devices that I’ve seen work with PC only. Obviously I am looking for an at-home substitute for a full sleep study. Any feedback?
The orthodontist's mouthpiece was supposed to be made specifically for sleep apnea. It was one piece plastic and not adjustable, though she did make me a second one that pushed the jaw a little more forward. The mouthpiece worked well for snoring but the sleep study result didn't change. I have read about more complicated and adjustable mouthpieces made by dentists, but I don't know if they work any better.
The bipap noise was from the air whooshing in and out. Sleeping pills didn't help and caused a bit of amnesia. I also read about appliances that attach to the nose, but my internist says that they're uncomfortable.
My sleep doctor has left town but I'm sure I can find another one, if necessary.
I apparently have Moderate sleep apnea and only when sleeping on my back. An orthodontist-made mouthpiece didn't help. I gave bipap a good try but finally discontinued it because of noise and mask issues. Do you know of any dental appliances or other therapies that actually work?
