RemStar Pro 2 w/C-Flex - parts needed
    I just started with this machine and the small red tube (there are 3 tubes that connect) broke off the plastic connector. This happened on one and they sent me a replacement and the same thing happened. It happened when i was exhaling to hard on both it seemed. I just need a replacement part which is the grey piece the red tube connects to. Ive searched and asked and searched. Can anyone help me find this part???

G'day Blackhawk. I've split your post out into its own thread to give it more prominence.

Good luck - I hope you can get the necessary parts.

What series is this machine? Every Respironics CPAP since the legacy models has been call RemStar. Some more recent models are the M-Series, System One 50 and 60 Series, and the current Dreamstation Series. Older than M-Series, and you need to seriously write-off this machine and update. A picture of your machine showing placement of this part, or the actual model number would help.

RE: RemStar Pro 2 w/C-Flex - parts needed
From his previous posts, it looks like he has a REMstar Pro 2, which is the older, pre-2007 series.  There's been 4 REMstar series introduced since then - the REMstar M-series, the 50-series PR System One REMstar Pro,  the 60-series PR System One REMstar Pro & the current one (the DreamStation Pro).

If it's indeed true that you have the older REMstar Pro 2, as Sleeprider said, I wouldn't waste my time trying to get it fixed - it's WAY, WAY past it's expected lifespan of 5 years of continuous use.  Even if you fix it, it's quite likely that something else will go wrong soon, simply because of the age of the machine...  Time to spend your money on something newer-- and the more current machines are FAR better at mitigating apnea events that the Pro 2 series anyway.

And with a newer machine, you're more likely to get one that uses an SD card to record data, and using a software package like SleepyHead will allow you to monitor the effectiveness of your treatment, and give you a sound basis for adjusting your pressures accordingly.

Most medical devices have some type licensing/SN/model number/date information that has to be displayed. Is there a decal/sticker on the CPAP's underside?

Nice one.

I have Remstar Pro II and have E-47 error.  Does anyone have any parts for this? I use it as my travel cpap as insurance will only pay for 1 every 5 years.
