Travel CPAP - can I rent one?
#1
I need a company that rents the Z1 or Transcend machines. Does anyone have recommendations?

I am traveling internationally and the flights worry me. I know I can use the machine on my carrier and I have a outlet at my seat. I snore so loudly so I either 1) cannot sleep because of the noise (and force myself to stay awake which I dont think I can do for that amount of time) or 2) use a machine. I will need the smallest machine possible otherwise I will feel so self-conscious.

If this matters, I currently use a S9 and my pressure is 13. I never use my humidifier anymore.

I think you can order one on-line for a free 30 day trial. Keep it if you like it. Return it if you don't after your trip.

Thanks. Im considering that. One company, cpapxchange is offering a free second battery with purchase now. Thats a 250 dollar value. They are also one of the least expensive at 1225 for a Z1 auto with battery!

Can anyone vouch for them or another company in particular, renatl or otherwise?

Hi davisesq212,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Since you aren’t using your humidifier with your S9, that makes it quite a bit smaller and you could take it on your trip.
I have ordered from the supplier you mentioned in your post, (Supplier #18 here on the board,) and have had no trouble with them.
Good luck to you on your machine decision and much success to you with your CPAP therapy and have a nice trip.

Thanks for the advice. I do think I want something even smaller than the S9 even without the humidifier (Z1 I can put on my lap comfortably) and not even worry about plugging in if my seat is changed/ I have no outlet. I am glad to hear u had success with the cpapxchange. Makes me feel a LOT better since that extra battery is a significant savings.

If I was going to feel self-conscious it would probably be over the mask hanging off my face. I've always felt that most women actually prefer a big machine.

The bigger the better BUT not in this travel scenario. Oh-jeez

With your pressure of 13, you can expect less than 6 hours on the Z1 battery....but that should be enough for a flight.
Actually, you should get the Q-Tube as well or you will sound like Darth Vader.

And while you're at it, the air in the plane is dry so even if you don't use a humidifier at home you might need one on a plane. I have personally never used my Z1 while flying. It may be good insurance to pick up a couple of HME's as well.
