Need a Travel CPAP

Need a Travel CPAP
Hello Friends.  My Philips Dreamstation is impractical for travel.  I would appreciate any advice about (1) a good small travel model (price is not an issue) and (2) a reputable source.  Thanks for your help.

RE: Need a Travel CPAP
I recently purchased a Dreamstation Go with humidifier for an upcoming trip. I’ve been trying it out at home for the past 2 weeks and like it, even considering it for my full time machine. I am coming from a PR System One machine, and since you have a Dreamstation, I’d think it would be an easy transition. I purchased the bundle on sale from supplier 1 on the supplier list, and there is also currently a $100 rebate.

The Dreamstation Go is quiet with the humidifier, small enough for an overnight bag, and will get the job done if you're already using a Dreamstation.
It's smaller, doesn't need a 'brick' power supply and is fully data capable.

I’ve traveled to a number of Asian and European countries first with a System One and with an S9. Always carried them on. Was never a big deal. No real reason to have a special machine.

It’s all in what you want to put up with. I’m actually in the process of packing up for an early flight tomorrow, and the Dreamstation Go is all ready, and I’m looking forward to 1 less bag to mess with.

RE: Need a Travel CPAP
My wife hated me waking up at 4am for flight only to start dismantling and packing my machine. There's no quiet way to do it in the dark!!
I'm with drwoodr, it's nice to have a machine prepacked ready to go if you travel regularly. My Dreamstation Go doesn't work as well and my main Resmed machine, but I'm happy travelling with it for the convenience.

My home machine is a Resmed Aircurve V10 auto. My travel machine is the S9 version which has a detachable humidifier. If I put the S9 humidifier in my checked luggage and the S9 into my carry on (it will fit easily into my carry on backpack) I have the ideal travel machine.

I bought the Resmed AirMini recently and have been very happy with it. I was not expecting to be, given some of the negative feedback and reviews.

It's very small, and I am not too bothered about the exhaust noise, since I sleep with earplugs anyway. I have mainly used it without the optional humidifier part.

Many shops offer a trial period (e.g. 30 days) so there is no risk in trying it.

My home machine is a Resmed Airsense 10 for her, and when I am away, I have had similar experience/AHI with the Resmed Airmini.
