Need a splitter for cpap hose

Need a splitter for cpap hose
okay stay with me here... THIS IS NOT FOR THERAPUDIC USE.

I have a cpap I use every night. This is not for that.  It is also not April.


I still have my old machine, and the battery still works.
I  have 3d printed an immortan Joe mask (Google it) and it has 2 ports.  It sucks to wear because it is hard to breathe in, so I wanted to experiment with running positive air pressure to it, and my old cpap is perfect, but the mask doesn't look right with just one hose, so I want both running.  If I just leave the second hose dangling, the cpap detects too big of a leak and shuts off.  So I want to connect both sides of the one mask to one output.

So before I hack up a couple of old hoses with a picture tee and hose clamps, I figured I'd ask here.  Is there such a thing as a cpap Y splitter?

What about blocking the unused second hose? And I do not know of such a device.
Search google for Adult Parallel Wye connector

Will that work.

Blocking the other hose solves it sensing a leak and turning off, but doesn't get me air on both sides.  I would post a pic, but I am a noob...

Try the local hardware supply, look in the plumbing section for a plastic Y or T piece of the right diameter to fit the hoses.

We often use 22mm Corr A Flex tubing in 6 inch segments to build EERS (see wiki). You can search “ 22mm OD 15mm ID wye connectors” and will find many wye connectors used in respiratory circuits.
