How to reduce my events while using my Cpap

Hi Jim @thankful, I had the hose problem the first few months and then someone told me about the CPAP hose stands. I got one from Amazon and it has bee great. It keeps the hose above my head and out of the way when I roll over in bed changing sides. Depending on how high your bed is you can also put the stand on the floor but may have to set some books on it to keep it from moving (it's really lightweight small aluminum tubing). If the stand part is under the mattress it kind of holds it in one place. On the floor it could move around easily. It also helps me keep the cat from chewing holes in the hose 🙂.

@johnbishop– Those look handy, but I don't seem to have any problems with my method. As long as you have space between the mattress and bottom of headboard (or if your headboard is low you could go over the top) to run the hose it has worked well for me.
I sleep on both sides and back and rarely have issues.
One thing I've been noticing for awhile now is when I have higher a AHI score I often have happy faces showing on my display then when the display shows mask leak my AHI scores are lower? Wondering if there is something to this?
