has anyone else had to do a sleep study with one of these thingies on? It's just measuring heart rate and oxygen saturation as far as I can see, and I was wondering if anyone else had had it and knew why it was usually done! My cons never mentioned it to me, he just ordered it. Got to wear this thingy for two nights (it looks like some weird torture device I think) and then give it back. I can't imagine it diagnosing anything much? Surely they couldn't look at sleep apnea with this (and not sure why they'd be looking for that anyway) and O2 sats aren't a great measure of control for me at rest, so can't really see what it'll show?
It is making me a bit paranoid lol! Put it on and now can't sleep, I'm reluctant to do anything much as the numbers will look really dodgy if I'm wandering about!! And trying not to indulge the scientist in me, being able to see the numbers as I do things inspires great curiosity....sigh!
Any thoughts much,y appreciated
Walked into my mums room and pointed my finger at her going ""ET phone home"" hehehe! Ah the fun of having weird medical toys!! Lol! Xxx
