Hi all,
anybody have any experience of travelling to Russia with a CPAP machine? The hospital told me that i can carry it on as additional hand luggage when flying as it is medical equipment, although i'm not sure what Russian airport security will make of it. I don't want to pack in my suitcase and risk it getting damaged, so if anyone has any advice i would be grateful to hear it. Cheers, Paul.

It may be a good idea to ask her-in-doors to call the Russian customs and get full clarification...

I have no knowledge on this subject so can be little help only, sorry..

Good Luck...

Thanks Mel, her-in-doors is currently in the Motherland so maybe i should ask her to pop up to Anapa airport (about 5 mins in a car) and ask a few questions. But as you no doubt know, rules, regulations, local byelaws can change from area to area in Russia. Travel a couple of hundred km's up the road and rules can and do differ, it all depends on which way the wind is blowing. I will check with the airlines BA and S7 in the meantime.

I'm in Italy with it right now and really like it. So light. I packed the cpap itself along with the power supply and flexible tubing in one Eagle Creek "tube cube". Only my full face mask needed a separate bag. All went easily in my carry on. It's a bit noisier than my home cpap but after a day or two it wasn't an issue. For me it was worth the $$, and i will suggest you to check http://healthyhowardmd.org/blog/cpap-versus-bipap-what-differs/ сause you will find some useful infrormation for yourself as for beginner.
