U.S. Transportation Security Administration policies state that Respiratory Equipment (like CPAP and BiPAP/BiLEVEL) systems are allowable as carry-on luggage. In addition, because they are a medical necessity, CPAP systems should NOT be counted towards your carry-on allowance.
This 4.25 x 2.25 inch heavy duty, durable plastic, Medical Equipment I.D. Tag, with a removable strap, identifies your equipment for easier check-ins and security points. Our Medical Equipment Identification Tag reads:
MEDICAL ALERT - RESPIRATORY EQUIPMENT
CPAP/BiPAP/VPAP/AUTOPAP This respiratory therapy device is a medical necessity and should be kept with the patient at all times. It should not be stored away from the passenger and does not count as carry-on luggage. This device provides life support for people with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
DOT (Department of Transportation) Rules State Respiratory therapy devices (i.e. CPAP) brought into the cabin by an individual with a disability shall not count towards the limit on carry-on items. TSA (Transportation Security Administration) Rules State Respiratory therapy devices may be inspected at any and all check-in points but should not be separated from the prescribed owner.
A little help goes a long way. Help security and help yourselves get inspected as fast and as expedient as possible. Please note that this tag only identifies your medical equipment. It does not guarantee faster processing due to security levels at various airports or attitudes and personalities of security personnel.
Please do not use this ID Tag on other types of carry-on baggage.
We recommend also carrying your doctor's prescription and/or a letter of medical necessity with you while traveling.
NOTE: The Generic Medical Alert Luggage Tag design and text may differ slightly from that shown above.
The tag itself is sturdy. The rubberbans like thing that's used to attach it to luggage seems a bit flimsy. I used that along with my lick to make sure it wouldn't fall off. Written by mcdavis73, 2018-11-13
Just what I need for airline travel. Written by timotoole64, 2018-09-30

Haven't had a chance to put it to the test. Written by walknwuds, 2017-11-06
The tag will get the job done, but I wish it simply said Medical Device. Written by stephenajohnson, 2017-09-18
only problem is I have not figured out how to write my name on it since it is a very slick surface. Written by robynsehy, 2017-09-11
CXC Notes: Hello, Try a Sharpie Marker. They're usually the best option. Sleep well!
Quick delivery & exactly what I expected. Hope to get through airport security more smoothly Written by merileebluel, 2017-08-01
The tag fits all the needs I was looking for having something visible so TSA won't hassle me while going through the checkpoint. Written by jhaschke50, 2017-06-15
Nice, heavy plastic tag to alert airport screeners and gate personnel that you are carrying a CPAP and are entitled to carry it on board the aircraft without penalty. Nice size. Looks good. Will transfer to new CPAP bag when you upgrade machines. Written by Robert, 2016-11-04
I ordered the cPAP luggage tag in preparation for travel. It was delivered promptly and was as advertised. Written by Roberta, 2016-10-29
Ordered medical alert tag for travel with cpap...haven't departed yet so nothing to report Written by Nelda M, 2016-05-09
travel tag for my cpap machine, quality appears to be excellent, easily readable any tsa agent should be able to figure it out Written by sauyong, 2016-01-04
I know I'm supposed to carry the Cpap in my carry-on, but rarely do. After a recent trip overseas with the Cpap in my checked bag, TSA opened the bag to check it out. I understand that an apparatus of that size with all the circuitry might arouse suspicion. It is my hope that having this tag on my checked bag, future inspections might be prevented. I haven't travelled since getting the tag. The tag is sturdy and has an important, official appearance giving it legitimacy, which is what I was after. Written by Barry S, 2015-05-10
It was everything I expected. Written by Jay, 2015-03-30
Found this to be a good STURDY tag. It would be nice to have a little more room for ID purposes and a smaller company name area. Was thrilled to find there was no shipping charge. Would order from the Exchange again. Written by J., 2015-01-06
A good tag for a carry on bag full of medical equipment Written by David, 2014-06-16
The luggage tag for my CPAP is just what I wanted - easy to see, durable, easy to attach. Quickly shipped and reasonably priced. Thank you. Written by Judy H, 2014-03-27
Excellent. Info on tag should help with airline check in and also security. Service from CPAPexchange is top notch. Written by Dave in PA CPAP user since 1987, 2013-12-06
Came when promised and as advertised. Written by Paul, 2013-05-28
Great tag...makes me want to fly somewhere just so I can use it and avoid the hassle about whether my Cpap is a medically necessary device or carry-on luggage! Am showing it to everyone who could benefit! Written by Irene, 2012-10-28
Wonderfull Customer service assistance. Super fast delivery. Top communication. Best Regards from Germany Written by Fischer-Moore, 2012-10-05
Haven't had a chance to travel with the new medical alert luggage tag, but it seems solid and virtually indestructible. The rubber loop that attaches it is equally immune to damage. Looks like a winner! Written by John R, 2012-07-24
