September 2015   (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Change in Pain Scores From 0-30 Minutes on a Visual Analog Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: From baseline (0 minutes) to 30 mins ]

The mean change in VAS pain scores from 0 minutes to 30 minutes was selected as the primary outcome measure.

The VAS scale has a range from 0-10 with higher scores indicating greater severity of symptoms.

Change in Visual Analog Scale (VAS) from 0-30 minutes [ Time Frame: 30 mins ]
Subjects will complete the VAS at 0 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes and 60 minutes after starting gas therapy. The mean change in VAS scores from 0 minutes to 30 minutes will be the primary outcome measure.

  • Change in Pain Score From 0-15 Minutes on the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: Baseline (0 minutes) to 15 minutes ]

    The mean change in VAS pain scores from 0 minutes to 15 minutes was selected as a secondary outcome measure.

    The VAS scale has a range from 0-10 with higher scores indicating greater severity of symptoms.

  • Change in Pain Score From 0-60 Minutes on the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: Baseline (0 minutes) to 60 minutes ]

    The mean change in VAS pain scores from 0 minutes to 60 minutes was selected as a secondary outcome measure.

    The VAS scale has a range from 0-10 with higher scores indicating greater severity of symptoms.

  • Final Pain Severity Score 0-1 on the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 60 minutes ]

    The percentage of migraine attacks with the final (60 minute) VAS pain score 0-1 was selected as a secondary outcome measure.

    The VAS scale has a range from 0-10 with higher scores indicating greater severity of symptoms.

  • Final Pain Score 0-1 or Score Improved 3 or More Points on the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 60 minutes ]

    The percentage of migraine attacks with the final (60 minute) VAS pain score either 0-1, or a 3-point improvement from baseline, was selected as a secondary outcome measure.

    The VAS scale has a range from 0-10 with higher scores indicating greater severity of symptoms.

  • Final Visual Symptom Score 0-1 on the Visual Analog Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 60 minutes ]

    The percentage of migraine attacks with the final (60 minute) VAS visual symptom score 0-1 was selected as a secondary outcome measure.

    The VAS scale has a range from 0-10 with higher scores indicating greater severity of symptoms.

  • Final Nausea Score 0-1 on the Visual Analog Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 60 minutes ]

    The percentage of migraine attacks with the final (60 minute) VAS nausea score 0-1 was selected as a secondary outcome measure.

    The VAS scale has a range from 0-10 with higher scores indicating greater severity of symptoms.

Normobaric Oxygen (NBO) Therapy in Acute Migraine
Normobaric Oxygen (NBO) Therapy in Acute Migraine
This is a pilot study investigating the therapeutic potential of breathing 100% oxygen in acute migraine headache.
A total of 40 adult subjects will be enrolled, male and female. Subjects will be consented to inhale either Normobaric Oxygen (NBO) or Room air for 30 minutes at the start of their migraine attacks. Outcomes will be assessed during and after gas treatment.
