Whether you travel by air, sea, or land, travelling with your CPAP machine is not difficult as long as you are careful and plan ahead. We are here to support you at your local VitalAire clinic, on the phone, and at our affiliated clinics around the world.
You can travel with your everyday CPAP machine as long as you plan ahead.
For short trips or if you travel frequently, you can also get a special travel CPAP machine (portable CPAP) which is smaller, runs on a battery and is designed for travel convenience. A travel CPAP machine can be ordered at your local VitalAire clinic or through the phone.
When you go for longer periods we recommend you take your everyday CPAP machine for its durability and better humidity settings.
Before you move your CPAP machine anywhere, always remove the humidifier chamber first – even if the humidifier chamber appears to be empty – to prevent water getting inside the machine.
Assess the state of your CPAP machine for possible issues or needed replacement parts. You can bring it to your local VitalAire clinic for assessment; just schedule your appointment for at least 10 days before your departure so we can ensure your machine is fit to travel. We also have carrying cases to make your travel easier.
We recommend taking these steps to ensure you travel safely and in comfort.
