PAP Mask: Resmed Air Fit F20
PAP Machine: Resmed AirCurve 10 VAuto
Humidifier: HumidAir Heated Humidifier
Pressure Setting: Low - 12 High - 25

I don't know how it happened but this morning I noticed that the compartment door to where the filter stays was slightly open and the filter was missing. I figured it was about 3 or 4 days that I was using my machine unknowingly without it.

My new BiLevel seems to be perfectly fine but would it have been a problem for it if it was a longer period of time without a filter?

PAP Mask: Practically tried them all.
PAP Machine: Use Phillips Respironics System One APAP with Aflex for mask testing
Humidifier: None
Pressure Setting: When testing, I use APAP with a range of 5-10

I'm sure after awhile it would start to have an effect, but how long that is is an unknown. I compare it to an HVAC system. Those have the potential to move a lot of dust/dirt. You don't want that stuff getting into the ducts, same as with a CPAP machine.
