RE: Plane travel with machine?
Well...of course if conditions are optimum it would be best to keep it all together but with my laptop bag and other stuff that has to be carried when I'm being the road warrior it's not practical to hand carry the whole assortment. I don't expect to have my checked bag lost very often....but even if it were and I had to go without therapy for a few nights I don't think it would kill me - could be wrong about that but I didn't die from apnea for the first 25 x 365 nights I suffered with it so I don't think a few more will be fatal.Dont-know

they dont lose bags very often and when they do its usually returned in hours, not days.

only lost one bag in 8 years of flying almost every week, they got it home in 4 hours for me

Not a problem for me. If I cant ride a motorcycle there or drive a car there, I aint goin. Been on trains, helicopters, private and commercial planes, and buses.

None of em do I have any wish too nor any need too be on again. No place I want to go there aint a road that goes there. LOL
