Introducing The Transcend II Travel CPAP Machine
This bad boy has both an AC and battery power supply, it’s very small and lightweight, and convenient to use as well. With features like automatic pressure adjustments, elevation adjustment, and more, you really cannot go wrong with this model. It features AHI detection, leak detection, and a couple of other neat features too. Let’s get right to it and talk about what the Transcend Auto CPAP can offer you!
Transcend Auto Travel CPAP Features
The Transcend Portable CPAP Machine comes with a lot of features that make it a very beneficial, useful, and a practical PAP machine for people with sleep apnea who still want to be able to travel. Let’s talk about the most important features and benefits which make the Transcend II stand out from the rest.
Small & Compact
Without a doubt, one of the most convenient features of the Transcend Travel CPAP Machine is that it is very small. When you go travelling you don’t want to be carrying around some huge and bulky CPAP machine. It just isn’t fun or convenient. Well, the Transcend II can fit right in the palm of your hand, making it one of the smallest travel CPAP machines out there right now. All of the components that can be located internally are located internally to cut down on the space being used. Heck, you can almost fit this thing in your pants pocket, which is a big bonus for anybody that loves to travel.
Related to the first point is this one, which is that the Transcend Auto Travel CPAP is very lightweight. The whole device weighs less than a pound, making it one of the smallest and lightest CPAP machines out there. You don’t want to be lugging around some heavy CPAP machine when you are travelling, which makes this particular model one of the best options out there right now.
Another thing which stands out about the Transcend Travel CPAP Machine is that it is totally travel ready and approved. First off, it comes with a nifty carrying case so you can easily pack it up and take it with you when you are on the go. Second of all, the fact that it is so small and lightweight does not hurt either. Next, the Transcend II lets you use batteries to operate it. Sure, you can use the AC Power Adaptor to plug it in when you have a readily available source of electricity.
However, it also comes with an integrated rechargeable battery that can easily last a whole night. Even if you don’t have a plug with you, the integrated battery can be quite the lifesaver. The tubing is also quite small, which is convenient because you can barely notice it while you sleep. Finally, the Transcend CPAP Machine also comes with automatic elevation adjustments. It will automatically adjust the pressure being applied based on how high you are in terms of elevation, thus allowing this model to be used on airplanes.
Just like with all other CPAP machines out there, the Transcend II Trave CPAP will automatically adjust itself to your breathing in order to keep your breathing all night long. It increases the pressure when inhaling and decreases the pressure when exhaling. The device allows you to adjust the pressure between 6 and 16cm. You can set this model to auto adjust to your breathing or you can set it to a steady pressure as well.
Something that many people love about the Transcend Mini CPAP Machine is that it is very quiet and free of vibration. Many travel CPAP machines can be really loud and create vibrations that disrupt regular sleep. Well, the Transcend II is one of the quietest machines out there right now, thus allowing you to get a good night’s sleep every single time.
Another really neat aspect of the Transcend II Ultimate Travel CPAP Machine is that it features waterless humidification. In other words, this model keeps the air nice and moist so your mouth does not dry out when you sleep. Even better is that you don’t actually have to fill water into the machine for this feature to work. This is something that will help make your sleep very comfortable.
