  1. I'm not a fan of the masks personally. I find it much easier to apply the breathing method that batch mentioned when sucking straight from the pipe/bag. Just personal preference. Been lurking on your mesculine implementation and wishing you the best of PF days.

  2. I lurk way more than I post. I have been using your breathing method since I read about it several years ago and swear by it. It is IMO way more important than the LPM. I have, humorously, had built my own "redneck resevoir" as the pictures you posted to get the most out of my concentrator. Your setup is much more "lasting" and better done - I think i'm going to try your version - seems like it's more "built to last." It seems like one thing us clusterheads have in common is we are very resourceful when it comes to trying to tame this beast.

  3. Thanks very much for the kind words. They mean a lot to me. I just posted this at another thread, but it seems pertinent here: My daughter has CH (I don't). Six years ago, people here helped us learn how she could manage it, after she had been misdiagnosed and mistreated for years by some "highly trained" neurologists. That's why I'm here -- out of gratitude; to keep learning as much as I can; and to try to help keep anyone I can from going through what she went through. The heroes of this board and the CH community are too numerous to mention. In my view, everyone who fights CH is

  4. Hey Bounty, Allow me to offer a different opinion and option regarding the use of an oxygen concentrator. In researching why oxygen regulators with flow rates high enough to support hyperventilation and oxygen demand valves were more effective with shorter CH abort times than a constant flow regulator at 15 liters/minute, I found that lowering serum CO2 was a key component in obtaining fast and reliable CH aborts. A lower arterial CO2 content elevates the arterial pH (more alkaline) and this is a more powerful vasoconstrictor than oxygen even at 95% purity from the oxygen concentrator.

  5. You are right about O2 poisoning possibility, But my tank would run for 5H before it ran out. I think that the solution is :Don't use a strap on a mask, hold it to your face.I do it like this.I feel better when I push it against my face. When the pain is gone , I can put on a strap for 15min,when I'm sure I won't fall asleep.
