Maybe a fitting from the hardware store or home center, along with some duct tape (my favorite weapon), can get you by until you can get it sorted out.

Did you check the old mask to see if a fitting was left on there? I've gotten myself that way several times.

And I changed your subject line so you can get the help you need.

All the hoses I have used simply pull apart. Find the joint where the hose connects to the elbow, grab the elbow in one hand and the hose end fitting in the other (they will be touching) and pull them apart.
Worst case is you may separate the hose from its connector, but not likely.
