Whether you're going on an overnight road trip or a two-week international vacation, you'll be able to sleep well and tackle your daily adventures if you continue using your CPAP away from home.
If you're planning to fly with your machine, be sure to pack your CPAP prescription with your CPAP equipment in your carry-on luggage. This, along with putting your machine in a clear plastic bag, will help you get through security more quickly. Not only that, don't forget to check with your airline about power/usage on the flight and don't forget the plug and/or adapter before you head to the airport.
If you're traveling internationally, most likely the outlets will be different than you're used to. Bring an international outlet adapter that will work in the location you're traveling to. Also, an extension cord is handy to have if there isn't an outlet near your bed.
If you're an avid traveler, or just like easy portability, you might want to consider getting a smaller, lightweight CPAP machine for your travels. The
Humidity can ease your discomfort in extreme climates.
Be sure to ask your provider for another filter and pack appropriate cleaning supplies in case you need them while you're traveling. And, be sure to clean your CPAP equipment, as directed, when you get home.
