Transcend CPAP

FAA's Obstructive Sleep Apnea Policy

Transcend Sleep Apnea System

A little over a month on November 20, 2013 the FAA's Federal Air Surgeon announced a new  Obstructive Sleep Apnea Policy. Every pilot under the policy must see a certified medical  examiner and have their BMI tested.

The Transcend CPAP is a small, innovative CPAP  machine that can fit in the palm of your hand. Pilots with a BMI over 40 will have to undergo a sleep study with a board certified sleep specialist.

The Transcend CPAP machine is unique in  that it is allowed to pass through any FAA security checkpoint and allowed to be used on  flight, unlike other larger machines. The passanger next to you will thank you for using your Transcend CPAP machine while you dose off for a few hours. If the pilots are consequently  diagnosed with obsturcive sleep apnea must be treated before they are medically cleared. 

With the size and convience of the Transcend CPAP machine, it would be a perfect  companion for FAA pilots that suffer with OSA( Obstructive Sleep Apnea). The Transcend  CPAP machine is ideal for the traveling livestyle.
