We have been supplying this CPAP + Ventilator Luggage Tag since 2010 and it has proved to be very helpful at Airport Security and Luggage Check-in to identify your important medical equipment which needs to be a carry-on item when flying. Placing the Tag on your machine's bag is also recommended when taking it anywhere, so that in the event of losing it, you can be easily contacted and it can be returned to you.
The Tag is strong plastic which won't break easily, measures 11 x 6 cm and comes with a red pvc robust strap. There are strips on the card to make writing on it easier, and there is enough space to write your name and telephone number, and putting your mobile number here would be the best idea, as you most likely will have your mobile with you when travelling, which means you can quickly be contacted should the machine be found by someone. The best pen to use would be a fine-tipped permanent marker, and there is the option to purchase the luggage tag both with or without a permanent marker pen.
The image shows both the front and back of the luggage tag, and for anyone unable to view the images on their computer the wording states:-
"Medical Equipment for Respiratory Therapy. NOT to be separated from the owner (followed by writeable strips for name and contact no)."
"CPAP/BiPAP/APAP/VPAP/NIV for the treatment of Sleep Disordered Breathing Conditions, such as Sleep Apnoea (Apnea). This is vital therapy and should NOT be separated from the owner, or classed as additional carry-on baggage when travelling."
Having the Tag on your machine's carry bag is also useful to alert your fellow passengers to the fact of why you have more hand luggage than them!!
Very useful for persuading nervous security that all is well.

I bought this because I was worried about having to explain my machine at airports when I go abroad later this year for the first time since starting on CPAP. This has put my mind at rest. It seems very robust and is clearly visible so should do the job perfectly.
Fab and professional-looking.
product is 1st class, the red colour really draws your eye to the tag (which is the idea) fantastic product would definitely recommend for anyone with a use for this .
Great quality like always, thank you
Pleased with this tag. States clearly that this is Medical Equipment and has space for contact number in the case of it being mislaid. Will be very useful when flying .

I bought the tag to attach to my CPAP bag when travelling as I thought that it gives more authenticity in the airport to show it is medical equipment and should not be treated as normal hand luggage. I have not tested the theory yet, but it looks good and should I be parted from the machine in some way it should be easy to return it to me from the information given.
Exactly as described.Discreet size but also make your bag quite visible as to what it carries.Highly recommend.
Good to have. Lets other's know what it is. So they can assist if necessary.
The tag gives good, clear information about the CPAP machine. I bought the pen as well and although I don't have the neatest handwriting, managed to get my name, mobile number and hospital number on the tag - just in case I get parted from it between the ward and the operating theatre!

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase. On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called 'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!
