The place where we picked up our non-rebreather mask said that what people use for CH is a machine that makes Oxygen. She said that you actually have to use 2 of these things spliced together to get the flow needed to abort CH pain.

She called our insurance company to see if they'd cover, but we seem to be out of cycle, so I told her to hold off and lets see what happens.

Question is: What the heck is she talking about. I can't quite imagine what a "machine that makes Oxygen" is. I looked at some old posts and thought maybe it was one of those Continuous Positive Air Pressure things for sleep apnea...but that would just be shooting air up your nose...right?

Is there something else out there on the market that you all know about....and if they actually have machines that "make" oxygen, shouldn't they be shooting the stuff out into the atmosphere to help replenish the depleted O2 levels in our air:). Maybe everyone would feel a little better.
