Can I use a travel CPAP machine full-time?
Travel CPAP machines are designed for travel and not as main CPAP devices. That said, it is possible to use a travel CPAP for your everyday needs. However, it is not recommended to use travel CPAPs as main units, for two reasons.
First, all travel units will be louder than the standard size. The manufacturers are trying to get all the components into that size, which is hard to do.
And second, the quality and durability of travel CPAPs just cannot compare with those of home units which are sturdier, more powerful, and more durable.
