Cluster headaches happen in periods and are one of the most painful type of headache with very intense pain – usually in the middle of the night when you are trying to sleep. Here are some types of treatment that can help relieve cluster headaches:
Oxygen – Using oxygen can help reduce and give relief of symptoms. Using this method of oxygen is safe and there are many portable oxygen concentrators available to hire or buy on the market. If you need to go on holiday then you can speak to OxygenWorldwide to help arrange what oxygen you need whilst abroad.
2. Triptans – This is an injection format to teat the headaches and used mainly for the less aggressive migraine. To start with you can go to your GP or specialist to learn how to inject to begin with. This method acts faster than for example inhaling with a nasal spray but you may feel more comfortable with a spray than an injection.
3. Local anesthetics – This method is a better form if you prefer to have something through the nose and can be used over the injection method.
Cluster headaches range in severeness so you would need to discuss all your options with your specialist to find out and discuss what is right for you. Sufferers need some form of relief as it is very painful and disruptive to your day-to-day life.
There are many medical reasons for why babies may need medical oxygen when going home such as difficulty catching breathe, apnea and many other airway problems that develop after birth.
Your baby may need a certain type of medical oxygen which may be an oxygen concentrator which can be used throughout the day or night and also allow you to travel.
As long as you have back up oxygen you will never run out.
Careful planning will ensure you can always rely on enough oxygen to last you whilst at home or travelling and keeping all of this attached to your pram whilst out of home and also in your baby’s room at night.
If your baby requires medical oxygen to help or aid breathing speak to your doctor’s to seek the best advice, equipment and what to do at home before you return to make it comfortable and safe for what your baby needs.
Coping with COPD is hard but when you start to get stressed, worried or upset or even whilst you are exercising, this may cause even more trouble breathing especially if you work yourself into being upset and tense your whole body. This in turn will cause shortened breaths and difficulty breathing normally.
In order to try and help there are a couple of techniques that could be advised to try. These techniques help focus on your breathing and slow down the panic and tensing up which stops your body from being able to breathe properly.
One is a belly breathing exercise which you should get more advise from your doctor about the correct technique but ultimately using your diaphragm more with it rising as you breathe in through your nose and lower as you breathe slowly out your mouth.
The second is breathing through your nose and out through partially closed lips. This is a great exercise to use during exercise when you may feel short of breath. Breathe out slowly don’t rush as this aids to help you able to exercise for longer intervals.
Feel free to speak or comment on our blog as we have a community of readers who require oxygen every day and may be able to help you if you have any questions.
