Everyone loves to travel. Not everyone loves to travel with their CPAP machine. While CPAP therapy is a great solution for those who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, hauling a CPAP machine to the lake house, onto a plane or out into the wilderness can be a real pain. But this doesn’t have to be the case for CPAP users. There are things that can be done to make travel with a CPAP machine easy and comfortable.
If you are looking to travel with your CPAP machine during your next vacation, follow these tips to make your life a whole lot easier.
Let’s face it: traditional CPAP machines are bulky and can make travel difficult. But this isn’t the case with all CPAP machines. Some are designed to be small and lightweight for easy travel, while still providing the full therapy you need on the go. Did you know there are CPAP machines that are about the size of a soda can? These travel-size CPAP machines are the perfect companions for travelers looking to take their CPAP therapy on the road. Some of these CPAP machines weigh just over a pound and measure only 7.5 in x 3.7 in x 3.7 in. Best of all, their small size sacrifices nothing in performance. CPAP machines meant for travel are just as effective as their larger at-home CPAP counterparts. You can even use them as your primary CPAP device.
Taking your travel CPAP machine with you may be easy enough, but depending on the type of vacation you are going on, there may be some rules that you have to follow. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a hotel that doesn’t allow CPAP machines during your stay, so you shouldn’t have to worry about overnight stays in hotels across the U.S., but what about flying, camping, cruises?
It’s always best to check with airlines and cruise companies before travel, and there are a few other things to keep in mind. Follow these guides if you are planning on taking any of these things during your vacation:
