Travel In Comfort: How A Mini CPAP Can Help

 Travel in 2020 is getting more expensive. It’s also getting more infrequent, with the average North American taking only 17.4 vacation days per year. With vacation time at a premium and costs rising year after year, doesn’t it make sense for you to enjoy your time off as much as possible?

If you have Sleep Apnea but also love to travel, a mini CPAP machine is just what you need. These little wonders are not only travel-sized- some are so compact they can fit into the palm of your hand!

Today, we’re going to discuss the benefits of a portable CPAP machine, and which accessories can make your trip more comfortable.  


Never Travel Without A Mini CPAP

An essential part of any good vacation is a good night’s sleep. If you have Sleep Apnea, you may be reticent to travel far from home without your regular CPAP machine. In transit, the parts of a larger CPAP machine may be damaged or lost, and setting it up in an unfamiliar location can be a real pain. Some CPAP users also worry about noise from their machine when rooming with friends or family, and sacrifice their sleep so that others won’t be disturbed.  

Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer from poor-quality sleep when travelling anymore. The newest travel CPAP machines are small, packable, and quiet. Some can even be used in transit, making it possible to get a good night’s sleep even on a long-haul flight or overnight bus trip.  


Benefits of Using a Portable CPAP Machine on a Trip 

Instead of going away without your CPAP machine, or struggling to pack your regular model, invest in a mini CPAP. These travel-friendly machines are smaller, lighter, and more compact than regular at-home CPAP machines, and can fit into the standard airplane carry-on with plenty of room to spare.

Many of these travel CPAP machines have comprehensive pressure features and apps that can track your data via Bluetooth. To ensure you can use your CPAP machine whenever and wherever you are, many mini CPAP machines run off battery or even solar power. These features give you plenty of flexibility while still offering all the benefits of CPAP therapy.
