[Equipment] Humidifier leak
#1
Humidifier leak
I have a Resmed AirSense 10 CPAP machine.  I recently purchased a SoClean machine and set it up to work with the CPAP. We left on vacation and I thought I had changed out the SoClean components/adaptords but apparently forgot the humidifier seal.  So hear I am in the middle of no where with a machine that says "high leak detected. check seal".  What can I do?  Is there any way to use the machine without the humidifier?  I have severe Apnea and desperately need the machine.
  Thanks

RE: Humidifier leak
You have to remove seals on the A10 in order to use the Soclean?

Curious. I have a relative that purchased the soclean and uses it with an A10.

Thank you,

RE: Humidifier leak
Unless I'm mistaken, ResMed A10 units need a blocker plate (for lack of a better name) if you're not able to use the humidifier. IMO it's due to it being a built-in humidifier vs example of PR DreamStation integrated 2 piece design.
