Travelling with oxygen has become much easier with the development of portable oxygen concentrators (POCs). These devices run on a battery pack, can be recharged, plugged into the wall or a cigarette lighter in a car, and can be taken on airplanes.
There are several makes and models, with widely differing features, so it is important to choose the one that is best for you, that delivers enough oxygen to keep your saturation 90 percent or greater at rest and with activity.
Some tips for air travel with POC’s:
· Start making arrangements with the airline well ahead of time to find out which POC is allowed. Many airlines list accepted manufacturers and brands on their websites.
· Allow plenty of extra time for check-in.
· Carry several extra battery packs. FAA regulations require enough battery time to cover 150 percent of the flight time.
· POC’s and battery packs can be rented.
· Carry an extra three-way plug for recharging your POC in the airport. People often need to recharge their electronic equipment in the airport during layovers, and this will help assure that you will be able to recharge yours.
· POC’s are exempt from the carry-on allowance.
· Carry a prescription for oxygen, signed by your doctor.

If you are a proud owner of a LifeChoice POC then you will already know how The LifeChoice is now helping patients all over the world: USA, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Asia.
The LifeChoice is the smallest POC (less than 2.2 kg) with 5+ hours of battery life, Auto Breath detection for Active and Sleep Mode, and the most powerful POC in its class at 750 ml output utilizing the state of the art Pulse Wave delivery system. The Pulse Wave delivery is a technology advancement over standard demand bolus pulse systems. You can feel the difference between the Pulse Wave and other demand systems. The LifeChoice is FDA listed (USA medical device), ISO 13485, FAA (airline use) and CE mark approved.
For mobile patients who are still active, walking, traveling, living their lives to the fullest and require 3 LPM or less, the truly portable LifeChoice is superior to the heavy carted/trolley transportable systems that the patient must drag behind them. These heavy carted/trolley systems are not truly portable since they require a cart/trolley with wheels. The LifeChoice also helps with certain patients where compressed or liquid oxygen gas is just not the right therapy especially if the patient is very mobile or travels. Also, with the LifeChoice, there is no fear of your cylinder running out of oxygen.
With the LifeChoice and its unique Pulse Wave delivery system (a blend of pulse/continuous delivery), patients Stay Active and Sleep Well.
