The Monarch® System and Airplane Travel
When traveling with the Monarch System, it is recommended to ensure that the carry case has the Monarch System Medical Device Card inside for easy reference by airport and security staff. This card describes that it is a medical device prescribed by a physician, and that it is needed for daily therapy. This card includes other technical references that can be useful to airport staff. If the Monarch System will be taken on an airplane, please refer to the section below regarding procedures to take for the device’s Lithium-ion battery. It is recommended that you always carry the Monarch System on the airplane with you and do not check it as baggage. This is to best ensure that it will not be lost or damaged in flight. For other helpful information including traveling with equipment, go to www.cff.org. Prior to flying, review the latest medical device regulations on the TSA website, www.tsa.gov. The travel agent or airline should also be able to answer questions.

Can the Monarch® System battery go onto an airplane?
The Monarch System uses a Lithium-ion battery. Current U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) guidelines allow for a Lithium-ion battery to be included in carry-on luggage only, but not checked luggage. If a carry-on bag must be checked at the gate or plane-side, the battery must be removed from the Monarch System bag and kept with the passenger in the aircraft cabin. Prior to flying, review the latest medical device regulations on the TSA website, www.tsa.gov. The travel agent or airline should also be able to answer questions regarding the requirements for traveling with medical devices.
