Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the treatment of choice for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It’s also used to treat COPD and overlap syndrome, a term used when OSA and COPD occur together. CPAP promotes better breathing by providing continuous airflow and applying a gentle pressure to the throat area. CPAP keeps the air passages open so you can rest easily and get the quality sleep you deserve.
For years traveling with a CPAP machine was restrictive and cumbersome. The traveling CPAP machine has changed all that and users who need to use CPAP during sleep now have an important advantage – they can sleep anywhere they’d like without having to worry about experiencing a drop in their oxygen levels. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular traveling CPAP machines available for purchase online.

Weighing only 10 ounces and measuring less than 7 inches tall, the Z1 comes with an optional, fully integrated “PowerShell” battery solution that provides enough power for a full night of cord-free CPAP use for most people.
