As CPAP users we all know how beneficial our CPAP treatment is and how much better we feel after a good night’s sleep. Traveling with sleep apnea means packing up and dragging along your CPAP machine. If you’re like me, you ask the question—do I pack my CPAP or not?
To travel with a CPAP, we must pull out the power cord that we have hidden behind the bed, find our CPAP travel bag, which is probably at the bottom of the closet, make sure that we pack every component we need (mask, tubing, filters).
Even worse when we fly we must make sure to list the medical device as an extra carry-on. Then there is the issue of sleeping on the plane without your CPAP, worried that your snoring is keeping everyone awake and embarrassing your spouse. Even though I know better I tend to say, “not worth the hassle, I will be fine without my machine for a few days” and just leave it at home. Only to find that while I am on my trip, my daytime sleepiness and other sleep apnea symptoms start to show themselves with a vengeance. So why isn’t there a better solution?
Well there is!
The new mini travel CPAP’s offer the same great therapy in a much smaller size. They even offer some great added benefits. Like USB charging ports, overnight battery options, FAA compliance for in-flight use, waterless humidification and continued insurance compliance with your CPAP machine.
