FOR WHEREVER LIFE TAKES YOU
Make sure you consult with a doctor about your travel plans and have all of the necessary equipment packed when traveling with your portable oxygen by plane. Commercial airline approved oxygen therapy devices include:
- FreeStyle 3
- FreeStyle 5
- For specific information about the updated FAA rule (SFAR) No. 106 regarding the labeling requirements and FAA-approved concentrators (released May 24, 2016) , please read the Portable Oxygen Concentrators Used On Board Aircraft Statement.
Map out your route with consideration of your travel time before you go. Keep your unit close, avoiding leaving your concentrator in a hot car. Don’t forget you can charge your device while you drive using your DC power cord.
Be sure to bring extra batteries when traveling by train and keep your unit close by, without any objects stacked on top of it. Charge your concentrator before you board so you can relax and enjoy your ride.
Cruise ships have strict policies when it come to traveling with portable oxygen devices. Contact your cruise line in advance to be sure you have completed all necessary steps before you sail away.
