A hearty welcome to you to the forum! I just bought a card reader for my PR System One (which is very similar to your CPAP machine) at the Supplier #1
web site for $59. However, I am sure that if you look around you can probably find a cheaper price than that.

Okay folks, let's restate this clearly.
The machine the OP has does NOT use a regular data card like the SD used in cameras. It is a "smart card", a proprietary thing that needs a special gadget to read it. This is not a card you can put into any other CPAP nor put into a camera.
Quip: You paid $59 for that?! You were severely ripped off. That is simply a single slot card reader from Iogear. Something like that goes for less than $15, probably less than $10 if another brand. And that is why I don't use that supplier.
