Nebulizers, CPAPs, BiPAPs, and APAPs

Carry On Bags: Yes (Special Instructions)
Checked Bags: Yes (Special Instructions)

Nebulizers, CPAPs, BiPAPs and APAPs are allowed in carry-on bags but must be removed from the carrying case and undergo X-ray screening. Facemasks and tubing may remain in the case.

You may provide a clear plastic bag to place the device in for X-ray screening. A TSA officer may need to remove the device from the bag to test it for traces of explosives.

Liquids associated with nebulizers are exempt from the 3-1-1 liquids rule, in reasonable quantities. For more information, see TSA special procedures.

Devices containing lithium metal or lithium ion batteries should be carried in carry-on baggage.  Most other consumer electronic devices containing batteries are allowed in carry-on and checked baggage.

For more information to portable electronic devices, see the FAA regulations.

 The final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint.
