I've been thinking about the use of our pulse ox and wondered what other do and how you use your pulse ox.
Thanks for helping me!!

i use the pulse ox while she is sleeping on occasion but definetly spot checking her about every two hours. she uses at naps and when she starts sprinting at night the pulse ox and the apnea monitor will be on her at night.

I use braden's pulse ox 100% of the time while he is sleeping. Periodically while awake.

We use ours quite a bit, thats why we need to get a portable one for school too.
We spot check during the day and use it all the time at night, I need it to feel secure about sleeping since Matty is vented as well as trached. We are currently using teh side of his foot again since the pulse ox probe keeps rotting the skin off of his toes! Not the best reading but at least Ihave an idea of where he is at!
