Travel Tips

Traveling With Transcend

Transcend miniCPAP is designed to go with you wherever your travels take you. We want you to enjoy the highest level of comfort and mobility with your new portable CPAP.

If you plan to use your Transcend miniCPAP in-flight, we recommend you follow these tips to prepare for your trip:

  • Download a copy of the FAA_Transcend_PAP Compliance letter HERE and carry it with you while you travel.

  • Contact the airline’s Medical Services at least two weeks prior to your travel date to obtain approval to use your Transcend miniCPAP on-board.

  • Carry a copy of the airline’s approval letter (if they provide one).

  • Carry a letter from your doctor that certifies your requirement to use a PAP device.

  • If you are not using a Transcend battery on-board, arrange for seating next to a power source and verify the type of power cord or adapter needed for use in-flight.

Other Travel Tips:

  • If you’re unsure about bringing distilled water for your Transcend 365 miniCPAP, bring your Transcend Water Filter.

  • Transcend miniCPAP automatically converts voltage, but may require a plug adaptor for use in another country. Interchangeable plug adaptors are supplied with the Transcend miniCPAP power supply. It is recommended that you use only the Somnetics-supplied Universal Power Supplies and accessories with your Transcend miniCPAP.

  • If you plan to use the Transcend miniCPAP batteries during travel, it is best to fully charge them before you leave for your trip.

  • Carry your prescription, medical equipment provider information, health insurance and contact information of your primary physician with you when you travel.
