Hi All
 
This is my first post here, but it seems apparent that 02 is really popular.
 
Can anyone give me details on cost and were a person goes to get some, and also how small of a tank can a person get ?
 
Thanks
Yogi

 Oxygen, as administered per the links provided for you above, can abort an attack by terminating the same activity that is terminated by subcutaneous administration of sumatriptan (imitrex injection).
 
 "Cluster headache is a rare very severe disorder that is clinically well characterized with a relatively poorly understood pathophysiology. In this study patients with episodic cluster headache fulfilling the criteria of the International Headache Society were examined during an acute spontaneous attack of headache to determine the local cranial release of neuropeptides. Blood was sampled from the external jugular vein ipsilateral to the pain before and after treatment of the attack. Samples were assayed for calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP), substance P and neuropeptide Y. Attacks were treated with either oxygen inhalation, sumatriptan or an opiate. Thirteen patients were studied of whom 10 were male and three female. All had well-established typical attacks of cluster headache when blood was sampled. During the attacks external jugular vein blood levels of CGRP and VIP were raised while there was no change in neuropeptide Y or substance P. Calcitonin gene-related peptide levels rose to 110 +/- 7 pmol/l (normal: < 40) while VIP levels rose to 20 +/- 3 pmol/l (normal: < 7). Treatment with both oxygen and subcutaneous sumatriptan reduced the CGRP level to normal, while opiate administration did not alter the peptide levels. These data demonstrate for the first time in vivo human evidence for activation of the trigeminovascular system and the cranial parasympathetic nervous system in an acute attack of cluster headache. Furthermore, it is shown that both oxygen and sumatriptan abort the attacks and terminate activity in the trigeminovascular system."

Thank you all for the information.
 
I am already starting to prepare for my episodic attacks which normally start in September.
 
From the information that I have read I still haven't really found out how small of a 02 tank a person can get or what they cost.
 
Can a person use one of those emergency scuba bottles or is that too small ?
 
P.S. thanks for the compliment rumplestiltskin I think ha ha ha thats the only picture that I have up on www.
 
Cheers Yogi

Heyyyy Yogi... on page two of the o2 button/link at left is a discussion of size and *some* costs. This varies greatly depending on where you live.  
 
The scuba tanks are NOT pure OXYGEN, they are simply compressed air--about 19-20% oxygen. I'm pretty sure it is addressed *somewhere* in that link. Or just click this:

good luck!
