Traveling with OxyGo NEXT is straightforward and simple. One reason is it so easy to travel with is because it meets all the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements for use onboard an airline.
Tip: Check with Your Airline Before Your Flight
It is important to note that all airlines have their own requirements when it comes to traveling with a POC. Prior to travel, you should check the website of the airline you are using, whether it's a large carrier or a small regional airline. On their website they will have a section on traveling with medical equipment. There you can find the forms you will need to prepare before your travels. This usually includes release forms from your physician for a prescription.
Make Sure to Have Extra Batteries
Generally, airlines require that you have 1 ½ times as much battery life as the length of the trip. With the OxyGo NEXT that's no worry! The extended battery life and effortless battery removal to switch to another battery means you can easily meet this requirement.
Another unique feature of the OxyGo NEXT is that it has Bluetooth connectivity that can be used with the My OxyGo App. This means you can troubleshoot, check battery life, oxygen purity and more with your unit all from your phone. This is especially helpful when traveling because you and your provider can see if there are any potential issues with the unit and resolve them quicker than ever.
