Easy Transportation with Porta-Lung

June 27, 2008 on 8:21 am | In Q & A, submarinesusie |

We have traveled by car with my Porta-Lung. It is very doable. My parents load into the back of our Explorer conversion van and off we go. We have brought it into hotels where we put it on the luggage cart and wheeled it into the room. We either lay it on the bed or put it on the floor. It’s pretty heavy at 96 lbs, but manageable! I have never put my Porta-Lung on an airplane for fear that the airlines would damage it, putting it in the baggage hold of the plane, or fear they could lose it altogether. One is better off erring on the side of caution so if I fly, I go to my relatives’ houses where I have a Porta-Lung already set up.

  1. What are some of the physical features of the PortaLung that you like as compared to an old fashioned Iron Lung machine?

  2. I like the fact that the Porta Lung comes in different sizes and that it’s lightweight. If you’re small like me, you can get one that fits your size. The Iron Lung is somewhat intimidating because it is very big, heavy and cumbersome. The Porta Lung can go through a regular doorway with two people carrying it while the Iron Lung could only be moved by taking a window out and moving it out with 5 or 6 people lifting it. I like the modern feel of the Porta Lung with the improvement of the materials used. There have been advancements to the neck seal such as a nylon collar vs. plastic collar. These come in various colors too.
