Oxygen concentrators vs liquid oxygen


Has anyone experience of using oxygen concentrators and liquid oxygen, please?

Our PCT/CCG won't permit the use of oxygen for cluster headaches. They're not convinced by the recommendations of NICE or the NHS (er... of which they're a part?!)

As I'm on a state pension, I cannot afford to buy oxygen for myself. And I don't like life.

I know that oxygen will help me. As a one-off, I was lent a small cylinder of it, yesterday. It was amazing and I feel well, today, for the first time in nearly a year.

I see that there are oxygen concentrators that can release 15 l/m.

1) Are they as effective as liquid oxygen (i.e. in a cylinder)?

2) There's a huge range of prices. Does this signify anything?

Many thanks,
