Airlines now require travelers who use oxygen while in flight to use Portable Oxygen Concentrators and the FAA has enacted may regulations to protect the safety of the aircraft as well as the passenger requiring oxygen. In addition to the FAA enacted regulations each airline is allowed to add requirements that they feel are necessary. This can make travel for the oxygen dependent passenger challenging. In an attemp to assist you in navigating these rules and requirements we have prepared an easy to follow information web page on the current oxygen regulation for air travel. We have also included many of the airline specific Portable Oxygen Prescriptions as each airline has their own form. It is recomended that you contact your air carrier several weeks prior to departure to inform them that you will be traveling with a portable oxygen concentrator and to confirm what document they require.
Our goal at SleepRestfully.com is to assist you in determining which portable oxygen concentrator will allow you the freedom to continue as many of your usual activities as you can. There are two types of oxygen delivery systems providing supplemental oxygen therapy; continuous flow (Respironics SimplyGo, SeQual Eclipes, etc) and pulse dose (Inogen One G3, AirSep Freestyle, Invacare XPO2, etc). All the portable oxygen concentrators we carry are approved by the FAA for use on airlines and airlines will no longer allow you to use take oxygen during flight.
A pulse dose system is the most common used portable oxygen concentrator because of its light weight and long battery life, some lasting up to 8 hours on a single battery charge. However, some oxygen users require continuous flow oxygen due to their diagnosis or illness progress. Continuous flow is also required by any oxygen user who is titrating oxygen into their CPAP or BiPAP therapy.
We are always happy to discuss with you your oxygen needs and help you achieve the freedom you so rightfully deserve.
