Something I learned and liked to share. You can't travel on a commercial flights with oxygen tanks. You need clearence to use a portable machine from each airline carrier. Doctors written statements and how to use this machine and fully charged back up batteries The machine actually dosen't do enough but better than nothing. Plan on extra time at security. They check it every time. God forbid you get a cluster attack in the airport. I did and security asked if I needed help. Boy was I rude. I can't talk during a CH. He was so afraid he walked off. So hopefully you travel with someone who'll explain this rare condition if you go
