Money Replacement Tming
I did not make the magic 5 number but did on the O2. Medicare would pay for O2 machine but not CPAP. I decided I would rather do CPAP than a concentrator - figured it might help with my bruxism. So I pick up the cost. Sometimes I have doubts about that decision. Dont-know

So, how often should I expect to need to buy a replacement
  1. Airfit F10 cushion
  2. AirFit F10 Head Gear
  3. Resmed A10 Heated Hose
  4. Resmed A10 Humidifier Tank

RE: Replacement Tming
There are Medicare guidelines around, but if this is out of pocket:

1.Airfit F10 cushion I change mine when it needs it, I clean them and at some point I say "this is not sealing like it used to" and the new one tells me I maybe should have done it sooner. 6-8 weeks. some go months. get a spare and see how it goes with you.
2.AirFit F10 Head Gear again get a spare when you can I get at least 6 months again some longer. you can wash them and get them to shrink, you could also tie knots in it to "tighten" them up
3.Resmed A10 Heated Hose Have not needed it in a year, wash it every now and then, just keep it clean
4.Resmed A10 Humidifier Tank as with #3

By the way you pressure starting at 4 might be a little low, depending on if you feel starved for air
