RE: Emergency help needed
I called resmed and they said not to turn it on, which I assume is just related to liability and of course some real danger of wet things with electricity! But the good news is that they said my machine is still under warranty with sleep-quest and to call them. So i did, and they said they can order me another machine. Meanwhile my night on a fixed rate c-pap was pretty miserable and man do I miss the EPR.

Thanks again for the suggestions.

Had to duct tape my mask hose join to the main hose.

Pretty much all hoses fit all masks. You probably left a piece of you mask on the end of the hose for your old machine. You probably have the clear plastic part that goes into the end of the mask's short hose still on the old CPAP hose.

Take a picture of the parts if you can't figure it out.

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