I will be travelling with my therapy machine. Is there anything I should know?

There are a few things to consider before travelling with a CPAP, APAP or bilevel sleep apnea machine:

  • When transporting the machine, always empty the humidifier tub to avoid water damage and place it in its own compartment in the carry bag.
  • When sleeping on an airplane, do not use your humidifier as turbulence increases the risk of water spillage and damage to the machine.
  • When powering your sleep apnea machine from the battery, we recommend that you don't use your humidifier as it consumes a great deal of power. To turn off the humidifier in an AirSense™ 10, AirCurve™ 10 or Lumis™ machine, go to the My Options menu and turn humidification off. For an S9™ machine, simply remove the humidifier.
  • If you’re using a sleep apnea machine with built-in wireless connectivity on a plane, always enable Airplane Mode.
