With airlines charging higher fees for carry- on luggage, you might want to consider a mini positive airway pressure machine (PAP). Here’s why my patient’s like mini cpap machines.
Mini positive airway pressure machines offer many of the same features as standard size units in a smaller package. It’s easy to travel with the mini PAP machine because it can easily fit inside your suitcase or a woman’s shoulder bag. This eliminates additional fees for extra luggage
Some machines weight less than 1 pound, an important consideration due to expensive overweight luggage fees. Also, patients find that the light weightmakes the machine more portable.
Some respiratory therapists think mini machines don’t deliver higher pressures accuratly. If you need more than 10 centimeters of water pressure, you should ask seller for a free trial. Sleep with the machine for 7-10 days and see if you sleep well and wake refreshed.
Mini PAP machines are not covered by many insurance plans and the machine can be expensive. In some cases, mini machines cost more than standard size machines. Expect to pay about $1000.00. If you travel often, the mini machine might pay for itself over time.
