Use of CPAP on flights where facemasks are mandatory

Has anyone traveled with their CPAP and tried to use it? I mean, you have to remove your mask to wear it, it blows air out constantly. Am I expected to stay awake the entire flight if I can't use my CPAP?

I would call the travel assistance desk and see what the protocol is.

Personally, I would not risk it unless you are willing to lose your life. If this gets in your lungs the pneumonia will put you on a vent in the icu in days.
