Flying with Medical Oxygen

Hawker 800XP

Medical oxygen users may not have the option to travel
commercially, but usually can be accommodated through private aviation with advanced notice. If you are traveling with a passenger who requires medical oxygen, or require medical oxygen yourself, here are the guidelines for flying on a privately chartered aircraft.

Personal oxygen cylinders are not permitted on the aircraft as cargo, but passengers who use oxygen can utilize FAA approved oxygen concentrators. “Portable oxygen concentrators are small, portable devices that separate oxygen from nitrogen and other gases in the air and provide oxygen to users at greater than 90 percent
concentration. They do not use compressed or liquid oxygen, which the government classifies as hazardous material.”

Passengers must ensure the oxygen concentrator is in working
order and must be able to operate the unit properly. They should also carry extra batteries in carry-on baggage in case they are needed. The unit must be properly stowed when it is not in use and carriers must also allow passengers operate these FAA-approved concentrators while moving about the cabin.

The FAA has approved the following portable oxygen concentrators for use:

  • AirSep FreeStyle
  • AirSep LifeStyle
  • Delphi RS-00400
  • DeVilbiss Healthcare iGo
  • Inogen One
  • Inogen One G2
  • Inova Labs LifeChoice
  • International Biophysics LifeChoice
  • Invacare XPO
  • Invacare Solo2
  • Oxlife Independence Oxygen Concentrator
  • Oxus RS-00400
  • Respironics EverGo
  • SeQual Eclipse
  • AirSep Focus
  • AirSep FreeStyle 5
  • Inogen One G3
  • Inova Labs LifeChoice Activox
  • Respironics Simply Go
  • Precision Medical EasyPulse
  • SeQual SAROS

Travelers requiring oxygen should be accompanied by someone who is familiar with administering oxygen, or by a qualified nurse or
doctor.

Medical Travel Contingency Planning

WorldClinic

Health may not be the first thing you consider when making travel plans for business or pleasure, but it is probably one of the most
important things you should consider. What if you get sick the night before a big presentation or on vacation? And while the risk is low, what if there is a true medical emergency? Do you know what to do?

According to Dr. Dan Carlin, CEO and Lead Physician of WorldClinic, the major issues that put you at risk are dramatically increased in a time sensitive health crisis. “The Golden Hour represents the time
delay between the onset of a crisis and the start of effective
treatment. The longer care is delayed during the Golden Hour, the greater the opportunity for something serious to turn truly
dangerous or deadly,” he advises. Dr. Carlin suggests a travel plan of action and intelligence.

  1. Know who to call for help.  Every country has a 911 equivalent: http://www.worldclinic.com/emergency-numbers-abroad/
  2. Know where the reliable doctors and hospitals are.  Resources include the local consulate or embassy, travel assistance number on the back of your credit card, or your hotel concierge–call them to find out how they have dealt with emergencies in the past. Try to verify the information; there should be concordance between resources.
  3. Check real time reports on where you are going.  Do this well
    before your travel date. http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/Travel
  4. Carry a prescription medical kit and know how to use it.  This is your frontline defense against the Golden Hour.

If you are traveling abroad, acquire the knowledge and a make plan. WorldClinic Members receive a travel brief that outlines all local risks, health resources and other pertinent information for each
destination. WorldClinic members have direct access to the on call ER physician who has secure access to their medical records and through the use of the Prescription Medical Kit can diagnose and treat via telemedicine. Medevac is included in membership.

Let us help you travel safely.
