Travelling with PAP Therapy (CPAP and BiLevel) Equipment
- Keep a copy of your prescription with your system when travelling for reference in security checks and in the event you need equipment assistance while you are away.
- Distilled water may be difficult to find in some countries but should be accessible at most pharmacies.
- Check with the airline to see if they require any further information about your PAP therapy system prior to travelling, especially if you plan on using during an overnight flight.
- If you are travelling outside North America, be sure to pack the correct electrical adapter specific to that country and don’t forget an extension cord – some hotels do not have conveniently located electrical outlets.
- Before you travel, research local CPAP retailers near your destination and keep their contact information handy.
- Travel CPAP systems are available for purchase but there is no ADP funding available.
- ProResp sells the ResMed AirMini device. It does not have a battery option and requires specific masks (N20, F20, N30 and P10) and an adapter kit specific to each mask.
