Carry Your CPAP Machine and Cleaner While Travelling

If you are a CPAP user and you like to travel, you will want to carry your machine with you at all times. Luckily, this is a very easy and simple thing, but there are a few things to keep in mind. Don’t forget that you should carry your sanitizer unit and CPAP cleaning bag as well. Anyway, we will cover all the main aspects of the content below.

Is A Travel Bag Mandatory?

The short answer is yes, you do need a travel bag to carry your CPAP machine. This isn’t the same as a CPAP cleaning bag. We will explain the difference later on. CPAP machines are durable and strong, but they are also sensitive and you can damage a component while carrying it in ordinary luggage. Investing in a bag or hard-shell suitcase is a smart idea. Keep in mind that this applies when driving or flying. Most machines do come with special cases that are designed specifically for that machine. This is an excellent investment.

If you damage your CPAP machine while traveling, you won't able to use it, which will cause a huge issue. You need to find a replacement part in a different country and there are compatibility issues as well. Making sure you arrive at your destination with 100% working CPAP is essential. 

Don’t forget that if you are flying, luggage handlers are not very sensitive to your luggage. You can end up with a severely damaged or ruined device that will need to be replaced any time soon. Try to avoid this at all costs.
