RE: Dreamstaton, meet floor. Floor, this is Dreamstation
I keep the CPAP machine on a wicker "chest" (maybe 40 years old), and the texture keeps the machine from sliding. The hose is hooked over the headboard in summer, and with a heated hose system, I'll probably keep it there in winter. Failing that, it'll get run next to my body. I use nasal pillows without the over-head linkage, so the input is from straight up when I'm on my side.

The chest is a bit low, but it's high enough to be useful. One of these years, I'll do a sub-stand for it. The night chest is too small, so that's not an option.

I use a repurposed typewriter mat which has a non-slip felt top (deadens vibrational noise) and a rubber bottom to anchor you device.

RE: Dreamstaton, meet floor. Floor, this is Dreamstation
My first DreamStation met it's end just that way... ; - /
Pulled it right off the nightstand - it didn't live. Luckily my DME exchanged it for me (it was all of 2 weeks new).

Anyway, since that happened I've taken to putting the hose around the post of the headboard - works like a charm.

Good luck!
