Self-Pay for Oxygen

If you do create your own setup, you will need to purchase a regulator appropriate for the tank you are using. Different tank types use different regulators due to tank pressures. 0-25 lpm regulators for E tanks are readily available online. In addition to this, you will need to purchase a mask and oxygen hose (clear tubing). We strongly recommend the ClusterO2 kit, available from ClusterHeadaches.com.
You may also hear about a “demand valve.” A demand valve is exactly as the name implies: it provides as much oxygen as you can consume when you inhale. This is the optimal setup for any cluster sufferer as it supplies a constant stream of high volume oxygen and closes automatically when there is no draw on the hose. However demand valves are costly, in the range of $250 and up. If you have an opportunity to get a demand valve, it is highly recommended.
