3 Reasons To Use A Portable CPAP Machine For Holiday Travel
Airplane in the sky during the holiday season.From crowded airports to lost luggage, traveling during the holidays is rarely a walk in the park. For those who use CPAP machines to treat their sleep apnea symptoms, holiday travel can become even more complicated. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice sleep just to make travelling easier. You need your CPAP device to get a good night’s sleep, but the bulky machine doesn’t exactly travel well.
 
By investing in a travel CPAP device, you can sleep in comfort during your holiday travels and on any future trips. Luckily, several portable CPAP options are readily available. Keep reading to discover a few of the many reasons why a portable CPAP machine is perfect for your holiday travel needs.

It’s small and light

Packing for a trip with your portable CPAP machine isn’t any more complicated than the usual holiday packing. These devices are small and light, making it easy to stow them in your suitcase or your carry-on. At less than two pounds each these devices will not add significant weight to your luggage.
 
One of the most popular CPAP devices is the Transcend 3 miniCPAP, which is about the size of the average soda can. This lightweight device is also impressively quiet at less than 30 dBA.
 
The Transcend 365 miniCPAP boasts the same quiet volume while also holding the title of the lightest CPAP with heated humidifier on the market. This integrated device offers all the same comfort a standard CPAP and heated humidifier offers, but only about half the size.

It has a long battery life

When you travel, you might not have access to working power outlets. If you end up sitting next to a broken outlet on the plane, you’ll need your CPAP machine to last for an entire night of sleep on just a battery charge. Travel CPAP machines are built to treat your sleep apnea for the average night’s sleep without needing to be plugged in. The Transcend 365 miniCPAP’s battery  lasts approximately seven hours, while the Transcend 3 miniCPAP battery may last for up to 14 hours per battery charge, giving you two nights of quality sleep.

You can use your HSA or FSA

While all of the features and perks of using a travel CPAP machine may make it seem like an obvious choice for your travels over the upcoming holidays, you may be doubtful that these benefits are worth the extra expense. However, if you have health insurance through which you contribute to a health savings account (HSA) or a flexible spending arrangement (FSA), you can rest easy.
 
You contribute to these funds throughout the year and can use them to pay for qualified medical expenses, which includes travel CPAP machines. This makes it much easier to afford a portable CPAP machine. If you have an FSA, it makes even more sense to use your funds on a travel CPAP just before the holidays because the contributions you made to your FSA throughout the year won’t roll into the next calendar year. You can sleep during the holidays in comfort while knowing that your FSA funds didn’t go to waste.
 
Keep in mind that no matter how you pay for your travel CPAP machine or which kind you choose, you will need a prescription from your doctor. Talk to your physician if you think you need a CPAP device to treat your sleep apnea. Then, contact YourCare Medical Supply to get a portable CPAP machine that will make your holiday travels less stressful.
