    Best cheap demand valve?

    That's not a bad price from what I've seen lately. As to the quality of one over another.....I can't really speak to that with any authority.

    Oxygen Mask question

    Demand valves on med regulators need a DISS fitting. DISS fittings can be found on either type regulator but they are not standard on either type. I've seen welding regs that can support the demand valves as well.
  3. History is always in the hands of those who write about it.

    Thank God for this forum and a few questions!

    Personally I'd switch doctors if one laughed at me.... Internet based cluster headache communities helped save my life. I have no time for self important gasbags who believe they know it all.

    Lilly's Emgality

    Some of you may know about Lilly's new drug Emgality. It appears that it's now FDA approved and ready to go for migraine. The interesting thing is during an interview this morning on CNBC, Christi Shaw, Lilly Bio-Medicines president spoke not only of the new drug's effectiveness with migraine but of Lilly's desire for FDA approval for cluster headache. Have a listen.....the CH reference starts at approximately 1:55. CNBC Video More about Emgality
  6. It was good to see everyone. I no long take pics at the gatherings as I used to. I'm sure there are those that do and I hope some of them get posted up here.

    CH & Aneurysm

    If they can coil it, a pipeline could be a 3rd option. No doc here but we were faced with the choices when my wife was diagnosed a few years ago.
  8. They like people to register in advance, but I think walk ups are fine.
  9. They will have a couple larger tanks that will accept welding regs. You do not need a script to buy a medical tank regulator. Even though you use welding O2 it pays to keep a medical reg around. They can be had for under 30 bucks online. I hope you'll attend one of my informal O2 sessions where such things are covered in as much detail as possible. Please check your PM's here.

    CH & Aneurysm

    Depending on the location of the aneurysm a pipeline stint could be used. A small cut in the groin area beats brain surgery. Ask your doctor's opinion.

    Does verapamil work as a preventative for you?

    My thoughts on Verapamil from a different thread...

    oxygen supplier issues

    I THINK it was Lincare but I'm not 100% certain. From what I've gathered from others...and my own experience, your local office (of what ever supplier you can name) makes all the difference when negotiating rates. I had a supplier that was good as gold for years but when the management changed I was treated like a liar and a thief. Long story short, they had failed to charge out several tanks and accused me of stealing them. How I was supposedly able to steal these tanks from outside a locked cage was never addressed. Apparently anything but blaming employee incompetence was an acceptable answer. Needless to say I'm no longer with this vendor.

    oxygen supplier issues

    I have known several people that paid out of pocket for tanks. One in particular had a deal for $10 E tanks anywhere in the country. It can be done.
