Need your help. I have forgotten the rubber seal of the humidifier airsense 10!

Need your help. I have forgotten the rubber seal of the humidifier airsense 10!
Hello all,
I am on leave for a week but forgot to take the seal/gasket of my humidifier (the smal rubber piece inside which seals it from outside)
I have a resmed airsense 10. 

So when I switch it on. It stops after few secs and displays a message the big leak.

I am in the middle of nowhere and have ways to buy it.
Is there any way to do without this piece? Any quick fix?

Thanks... :-(

Go onto Amazon and buy a replacement tub and get it shipped next day or find a local DME who can sell you a replacement tub they are consumable and no prescription should be required

Quick fix, electrical tape wrapped round a few times on the outside of the joint.
Do not overfill the tub.
Trickle fill through the vent that slopes inwards,  That is what I would try.
Then order one from Amazon with next day delivery to where you are.
I am NOT a doctor.  I try to help, but do not take what I say as medical advice.


Every journey, however large or small starts with the first step.

Sleep-well

A new humidifier tub is about $18 on Amazon. The suggestion to seal the lid to the lower chamber with tape will work, but be careful, because the seal also diverts any water away from the flow generator. Good luck.
