My husband was recently changed from a BIPAP to a CPAP and none of the supplies fit the new machine. What does everyone do with leftover supplies?

I can't imagine a mask that will not work with any machine so you must be referring to the water reservoir or filters? Which supplies don't work? In any case, you can sell them on Craigslist or other local sales forum.

Yes, nasal pillows can still be used but water chamber, climate line, etc..... cannot. Nor can it be returned to provider for a trade, credit, refund etc.....

Many sites have tried to restrict the sale of some of these items, so I don't know how much luck you will have trying to sell them. If all else fails, you might consider donating anything that is new/unopened. Some equipment providers and organizations have programs that try to help supply machines and equipment to people who do not have insurance or resources to purchase these items.
