The valve only allows air to go in one direction which keeps the pumped-in oxygen from collecting inside the machine and going boom. Slim, slim chance of that happening but in this day and age of lawsuits, they cover their assets.

Supplier #1 calls it "Oxygen Enrichment Adapter" and it is just $6. Whoever will be providing the oxygen machine thing will probably have the valve.

Those things are actually just fittings, not valves.

Be sure to get and follow appropriate instructions on using oxygen. In particular, don't run the oxygen if the CPAP blower is off. And NO SMOKING anywhere near the machine.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
