|Actual Study Completion Date :||August 2014|
Experimental: Intranasal Cooling
RhinoChill Intranasal cooling, administered for 20 minutes. 10 treatment sessions per participant.
Device: RhinoChill intranasal cooling
The RhinoChill device will be used to locally cool the posterior nasopharynx, surrounding tissues and vasculature using a variable cooling flow rate based on patient comfort and tolerance, for a maximum of 20 minutes. Local anaesthetic spray will be administered to patients if the nasal catheters or cooling is poorly tolerated.
- • Reduction of pain score and overall symptoms from baseline in Migraine/cluster headache sufferers [ Time Frame: 20 minutes ]When a participant presents with headache, baseline assessments will be performed for pain, nausea and other recognised symptoms of migraine/cluster headache. The Rhinochill device will be used to provide transnasal cooling for a period of 20 minutes then reassessment of pain and other symptoms will be undertaken.
- Tolerance to Rhinochill cooling during maximum 20 minutes treatment [ Time Frame: 20 minutes ]Visual/analogue pain score and visual/analogue discomfort score
- Adverse events noted throughout treatment phase and during follow up [ Time Frame: 1 year ]• Any adverse events noted during the treatment or following treatment and during routine follow up will be recorded and analysed.
