I am taking a two week trip to Israel soon and would like to take my ResMed10 BiPAP machine. I am not sure about the availability of distilled water. Are there any problems with using simple bottled water for two weeks?

Have a look at this link on Tripadvisor.com:

This link discusses not only distilled water but electrical current in Israel. Have a great trip!

Short answer, bottled water should be fine, especially for a relatively short period such as that. Worst it can do is slowly make your humidifier chamber dirty, but that normally take much more than 2 weeks.

I’ve never used distilled water in my machine. The person at the overnight sleep study told me it’s suggested but they never used distilled in their machines. I’ve never had any issues with any of my machine in all the years I’ve used them.
