Can I take my CPAP through airport security?

CPAP and BiPAPs are allowed through security checkpoints once they have been screened. You will likely be required to remove device from its carrying case while the mask and tubing may remain in the carrying case. To know if your device can be used aboard aircraft, the bottom of your device will have a note stating that it is medical equipment and will have a picture of an airplane with a circle around it. If your device does not have this picture, you will not be permitted to use it on-board the aircraft. Please note that your medical device does not count towards your carry on. It is not recommended that you that you check your medical device through checked baggage as the carrying case is not designed to protect the device. It is always recommended that you bring a copy of your prescription with you in the event there are questions.
