The Ambu bag my provider sent is humongous! It has LONG tubing and a plastic bag on the end with an attachment for something probably a vent up around the nose piece. Do I need all of these attachments? I'll have to rent a uhaul to get into and out of the airports. I'm already going to look like a walking ER with vent, humidifier, circuits, nebulizer, neck brace, and now AMBU BAG! Horrors! Next time we'll drive!!

Without a picture of your bag I can't be sure but tubing attachments are for adding oxygen which is rarely needed and these can be removed without affecting the basic function of the bag which is to provide manual ventilation in the event of a ventilator malfunction if you are very dependent and/or are using it for air stacking.
