Hi all...thought I might be able to help some of you guys who have used oxygen, and where it did not work. First time I got prescribed the Oxygen, it did not help at all, but years later I was explained HOW to use it, and now it prevents 95% of my C.H. attacks. You have to take it as soon as you feel an attack is on the way. You must sit up with your feet on the ground and you MUST take some very deep breaths in the beginning, then breath normal and try to relax for the next 5 -10 minnutes (I know it's not easy to relax, but do it as good as You can...). Dont ever fall asleep with the mask, that's very dangerous!Regards from Helle
