The Oxus Portable Oxygen Concentrator model RS-00400 is FAA approved.
Here are some tips to make your travel as smooth as possible.
You should have a statement from your doctor stating:
- Your name and date of birth
- Your need for oxygen during all stages of the flight
- The flow rates that you will be using during the flight
- Your understanding of the alarms, cautions and warning of the Oxus POC
Contact your travel carrier ahead of time to let them know you will be traveling with a Portable Oxygen Concentrator. If you experience any difficulty, please call and we will be happy to help you: (888) 475-1568.
You must bring enough spare batteries to last at least 150% of the flight time. Some aircraft may have seats which have power available, allowing you to plug in your POC, but those seats won't always be available.
Security, the flight crew or the pilot may want to see proof of FAA approval for the POC. Show them the small tag attached to the carrying case, which shows the FAA approval docket number.
When on the aircraft, your Oxus POC should fit horizontally under the seat in front of you, usually while still on the cart. There may be seats in the aircraft that will not accommodate the POC for stowing during takeoff and landing. Contact the airline to confirm your seat assignment is suitable.
