Are CPAP machines FAA approved?

Yes! You are permitted to carry-on your CPAP unit and it will not count toward the maximum 2 bag allowance (at least on domestic flights). We recommend carrying a copy of the TSA ruling letters, and a copy of your doctor's prescription. We recommend visiting http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/specialneeds/cpap.shtm for more information and remember to speak with your airline ahead of time.
