|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03075020|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : March 9, 2017
Last Update Posted : December 21, 2017
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Headache, Migraine||Other: Carbon monoxide Other: AIR||Not Applicable|
To investigate headache score and accompanying symptoms during and after inhalation of carbon monoxide.
With transcranial Doppler imaging, c-scan and laser speckle the investigators will investigate changes in blood flow velocity of the middle cerebral artery (MCA), diameter of the superficial temporal artery (STA), the radial artery and facial skin perfusion.

Active Comparator: Active carbon monoxide
Inhalation of carbon monoxide up to a carboxyhemoglobin concentration 22%
Other: Carbon monoxide
carbon monoxide, 4.7, Purity 99.997, inhalation of carbon monoxide in a volume corresponding to carboxyhemoglobin 10 and 20%, calculated from baseline Hg and body mass
|Placebo Comparator: Air||
Room air will be administered as placebo
- Headache scores, 12 hours [ Time Frame: 12 hours ]Comparison between carbon monoxide and placebo (atmospheric air)
- Facial blood flow [ Time Frame: [ Time Frame: 0-180 min ] ]Carbon monoxide induced changes in facial blood flow before and after inhalation.
