Summer holidays are just around the corner!
You don’t have to stop traveling because you have sleep apnea. And, you definitely shouldn’t leave your machine at home, even for short trips. Stopping your sleep treatment while you’re traveling can lead to setbacks and the return of excessive daytime sleepiness. Traveling with a CPAP machine is easy. Here are some tips on how to travel with your sleep apnea equipment while still exploring the world.
Stay on therapy when you travel.
Getting the sleep you need on vacation is easy!
A little planning will ensure that you’ve checked off a few important details before traveling. Having extra supplies will make traveling with your CPAP easier and stress-free.
Pack Your CPAP As A Carry-On
Lost or damaged baggage does occur, so it’s a good idea to take your CPAP machine on the plane as carry-on. As a medical device it does not count towards your personal carry-on limits.
Bring a Back-Up Power Supply
Battery packs are a great way to stay on track with your therapy when there is no access to an electrical outlet. Convenient if you plan on using your CPAP when camping, taking a long-haul flight or as a precaution for power outages.
Consider a Travel CPAP Machine
Travel machines are small, light and easy to pack for use when you travel. If you camp or are a frequent traveler, benefit from the same therapy and comfort settings packed small!
