CPAP machine for travel

Posted by beatricefay @beatricefay, Jun 20, 2018

Can anyone recommend a good CPAP machine for travel? The one I usually use is too large and heavy for my carry on.

My cpap machine is designed for travel. So, my quetion for you is who supplies your cpap machine? The comapny that supplies mine supplied me with one that travels easy.

I have a 3B/BMC Luna CPAP that I'm happy with. The company that supplied it does not offer a smaller travel size. Are you happy with your travel one? What bran is it?

It looks like the question never got answered here? Doe anyone have experience with a travel CPAP machine that they can recommend? ResMed makes one but it doesn't work with all CPAP masks. Dreamstation Go is another one. Anyone using one for travel, camping (battery powered), etc?

@johnbishop – I know we've gone camping with my father-in-law since he's gotten a CPAP, so he now needs an electrical campsite and lugs the machine along. He likely could use a travel alternative.

Hoping that @steve1948 @johnhans @thankful @bernese53 @menotpvcs @doodle75bug @oldkarl may have some suggestions on a good CPAP machine for travel that is not too large and heavy?

@johnbishop– I use the ResMed Air Sense 10 for both home & travel. It's stored in the typical gray carry case that I often see in many airports. Never had any issues with it as a carry on when flying. We went on a trip to an off grid lodge on the Rogue River in OR a few summers ago and there power is made with a generator and it comes on at 7 AM and off at 10PM. When I was looking into this for my C Pap they said they provide a battery and I just had to purchase a accessory to use for my C Pap use. It worked just fine! My brother uses C Pap as well and will often tent camp and found a small battery operated one that he likes very much, but I'm not sure of the brand name? Jim @thankful

Hi Jim @thankful — My problem is that I don't want the hassle of packing my normal one up and then putting it back. I did that when I had to take it with me for the knee replacement surgery and it was a pain. Then a few days after I got home from the hospital my CPAP machine malfunctioned and I had to have my wife run it into the clinic to get a replacement/loaner until mine was fixed. So I'm kind of looking at the travel CPAP also as a backup ☺ plus I really want something smaller that I can put into a suitcase and not have to carry another suitcase with me. My Dreamstation has a case but it's not small. This is the one I'm thinking about but I want to talk with the sleep therapist at the local medical supply store before ordering anything because one of the folks there told me she has one that she really likes.

@johnbishop– Hey John, that is one nifty looking C-pap! It sure would be easier packing something like that in my suitcase rather than the "gray case" so I would be interested in hearing how you like it? I have an appt. with my sleep Dr. on the 12th of next month and I will ask him if he has any recommendations on a travel version and ask about this model as well. I'll let you know what I turn up on this. As we like to say to all are friends using C-pap Happy Zzzz's to all!
