Re Resistance:-
 
   Helen (kindly) test drove a proto-type twin exhaust model.
There was an issue about placement of vales – “handling”.
What do you say Helen?
Was there less resistance?

Hi Ben,
Regarding the twin exhaust model... yes I suppose there was less resistance but it was more awkward to hold and I kept blocking the thingummy doo dahs (technical term) with my hands as they were in the way of my holding the mask. This actually created MORE resistance so for me at least it was not a better option and I prefer the normal style. I chug o2 at 15 LPM as you know, not a lower flow rate and I can honestly say I don't have a problem with resistance.
Love it, love it, love it!! Ben have I told you lately you're my hero by the way?  Kiss  inlove

When i had the old mask 02 never worked for me and i gave up trying. Then my daughter ordered me a clustermasx and I haven't looked back! I can abort in 10 minutes now and after being shown by the man himself how to get maximum benefit I now use half the 02 I previously did. Its a godsend!

Hi Guys
 
I also use the clustermasx and find it a vast improvement on the old crap I used to use.
 
Another benefit I found was to re- inflate the reservoir bag after use, so its the 'primed' ready for the next attack, so you are breathing pure O2 without waiting for the bag to inflate and aborting attacks in under 5 mins  
 
(P.s. its takes approx 6/ 8 hours for the bag to deflate)
 
Thanks Ben Wink

And yet another resounding endorsement for Ben's Wondermask................
 
Randy sent me one back in June along with a great 15+ LPM regulator. I WAS one of those people who said the O2 just didn't work well for me. The key word being - "was"
 
This mask made the difference between rocking in agony for 30 minutes hoping that O2 would work, to KNOWING that it will be gone in minutes.  
 
The difference is like night and day. In fact, I don't even watch the time anymore. I count 40-50 slow breaths and 95% of the time - it's gone.  
 
I've been chronic for almost 9 years and it really, really pisses me off when I think of all of the agony that could have been avoided. If you don’t have one, get one – period.

It's getting bad when you start lusting over a mask you stick on an 02 cylinder.
 
That's how it is for me - new to O2 this cycle, delighted to see it working - and that with a small face mask with tape stuck over the nose holes albeit at up 15 litres per minute from the cyclinder.
 
How can I can one of these in the UK ?

Just to add my endorsement as I have been using it for two full cycles now:
 
It is as good as everyone says:
 
It aborts faster- less than 10 minutes for me with this mask
It uses less 02 to abort
It is comfortable to use
You have no risk of suffocating while using it
I love the tube version as I bite on it while puffing and that somehow helps (reminds me of labour perhaps as it is an Entonox tube)

This is the Rolls Royce of oxygen masks!!!
 
For those who don't know me, I'm a primary chronic and I've been using Ben's mask for a while now. You'll make up the cost of the mask in o2 saved in no time.  
 
But the best thing is how quick it works. I recently got hit with a K-8 about 20 minutes from home. By the time I got to the house and the o2, it was all I could do to even see. Grabbed the Clustermasx and started sucking the o2 - aborted in less than 5 minutes!!! Cheesy

How to abort a hit if you are 4.
 
 
I thought you might enjoy Jasper's definition of how clusters work.
 
Mummy: So what do you think makes your head hurt?
 
Jasper: There is a monster and it gets into my head. It eats my inside of my head and thats why it hurts
 
Mummy: How does that beast get into your head?
 
Jasper: It's not a beast, it's a monster like the one that chases Harry Potter.
 
Mummy: Well how does the monster get into your head then.
 
Jasper: It gets in through my mouth when I have dinner's I don't like and then it hides. (nice try huh? he thinks he can get away with chocolate and chips for the rest of his life!!)
 
Mummy: So how do you make the monster go away.
 
Jasper: I get my magic mask and breathe and that blows the monster out of my nose and then it can't hurt me anymore.
 
 
So there you have it, get a clustermasx, its a monster blow job!!!  laugh  
I'm just over the moon I have something that works, that Jasper is willing (and eager) to use and that won't do him any harm as he grows which, with the other meds available, I can't be so sure of.

Here's what I wrote about it on OUCH UK:
 
Just wanted to post that I  got my masx last night before going to work!  I'm thrilled!  I haven't needed to use it yet (knock on wood....I do take Frova at night many times)...but I showed it to a bunch of people hehe  
 
I also had a neuro appt this morning after I got off work, and I showed it to him as well.  He bookmarked Ben's site and asked me to report back to him with details on how it was working out for me.  I told him that EVERY SINGLE person who's tried it has said it's made all the difference in the world, and that I could tell the same was going to be for me as I did just test it out when over at Randy's house the other day.  
 
I also told him that Randy made me a regulator with the flow part drilled out so that it goes to any level, but I doubt I'm the type to need that as my lung capacity is not good, and I rarely drain a reservoir bag at 15LPM - I just needed a better seal for sure!  I have to try the regulator with the masx - I think that's totally gonna kick arse...and Randy, if I get an H tank (maybe in a month or so...I have a regulator for that we could maybe drill?) Smiley
 
Ben...thank you SO MUCH for all you've done   And for those who've posted tirelessly about the benefits of this mask!

My main squeeze ordered one for me this week... can't wait to try it out. I've used up 2 e-tanks in the last 3 days, I'll be VERY happy if this save me O2 as well as being a great big gust of pure, sweet oxygen.
 
Looking forward to not having to rely on a crappy old non-rebreather. Thankfully, my O2 supplier got with the program and finally got me a 15 lpm regulator! Now I'm just waiting on the Mask of the Gods... I'll report back when I try it out.

You should be well satified, Joe.....even by a mask. A bunch of the lime suckers were having contests sometime back: Who could abort the fastest at the lowest lpm. The setup is excellent for that.
 
But not for ME. The selling factor wasn't conservation, it was On Demand. Granted, that took a change in regulator output, but having this mask, with a huge bag, and the ability to refill it in seconds.......ye gods.  
If there's one complaint I've heard from heavy lunged O2 suckers, it's bag refill time. That can now be avoided. Once you've huffed yourself down from the peak, you can turn that output meter WAY down. Until then, you can get all you need, thanks to the larger bag. Excess or conservation.....it's a win win.
