...it is most important to saturate the lungs with 100% oxygen as quickly as possible at the first signs of an attack. For me that means 9 lpm and I fill my lungs to capacity on the first intake and then use short exhalations and inhalations for a couple of minutes. Then I try to relax and take slow breaths, always to full lung capacity. Usually, I get some relief after about 5-8 minutes and almost complete relief after 10-12. I stay on the mask for an additional five minutes after the pain is gone.
