Travel tips for oxygen users:

  1. Call your oxygen provider two weeks in advance to arrange for back-up services at your destination.
  2. If flying, you must contact your airline two weeks in advance. Your airline may request a letter from your doctor which approves you for travel and a copy of your prescription.
  3. The only oxygen allowed onboard a plane for use in-flight is a battery-operated Portable Oxygen Concentrator (POC). Recharging is done by AC or DC adapter.
  4. Portable concentrators (POCs) are available in three general sizes: 5, 10 and 20 lbs. The lightest is useful for shopping and restaurants, the middle size for daily events like graduations and reunions and the largest for overnight travel. Battery size is the primary determinant of duration but also operating the machine in "pulsed-dose" mode is necessary to achieve the manufacturer's time estimates.
  5. Plan to carry with you the right tubing, power cords and attachments.
