Where can I get a new CPAP mask today, in NYC? Preferably downtown Manhattan or Brooklyn.

I awoke in the middle of the night, found some little strip of plastic next to me, shrugged and put it on the hotel room floor, and went back to sleep. Or, tried to - within a moment, it was clear that I had been handling the strap-holder in my CPAP mask - without it (and it had been somehow torn straight off), there was no way to clearly tighten the mask to my face.
In other words, my CPAP mask is broken, and I need another. Where does one get such a thing? I work a little south of Union Square, near 11th St and University Place, so anywhere in the vicinity would be great; I'll also be heading to Kensington/Flatbush later tonight, so anywhere on the way from A to B would also be fantastic.
But so this helps people more generally in the NYC area for reference, where *does* one get a replacement in the city as a whole? Thanks so much for any help on this.
(Super-special Bonus CPAP issue: I've been finding I wake up in the middle of the night, take off my CPAP mask, and wake up a few hours later and put it on. No idea why I'm doing this. This happen to anyone else?)
