Since there is no application being reported for CH yet, my first reaction is that this might be a real last ditch treatment to try for a bad chronic CH period or for someone having multiple attacks during a day.

Clearly, this would be an expensive treatment to be reserved for a small group for whom the usual treatments have been tried and not working.

As you know, so many drugs & treatments are not effective for all. I keep looking for OPTIONS for we need multiple "silver bullets" in the cabinet. So we have an interesting range including standard meds, oxygen, to water and packs of frozen food on the neck! But it's so common for an effective drug to stop working after a period of success that it's important to keep adding new, possible, treatments to our list of possibilities.
