Traveling with your CPAP Device

Most devices can convert 100-240V, 50-60Hz current, enabling them to be used in multiple countries.

  • Some airlines allow CPAP devices to be used in flight, while others don’t. However, you cannot use the humidifier in the aircraft.
  • Most devices adjust automatically to the altitude, while others have to be adjusted manually.
  • At customs, X-rays will not affect your device; however, you may be asked for your medical prescription. We therefore advise that you always keep it with you.
  • When camping, you can power your device with a marine battery or a converter/current generator (400 watts or more), but without using the humidifier.
  • At the hospital, we advise you to bring your device and your mask because hospitals don’t always have a device available or a mask similar to the one you use.
