Have a great night and thanks again.

Titles can be changed, just request what you would like it changed too.  A Moderator will come along and as long as it is reasonable it will happen.

Thank you very much.

Plmnb, I'm glad you posted here. From your own thread you posted the results of sleep studies that show you have far higher rate of apnea on you left side rather than supine. http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...#pid323730

In my response to you I point to the  Positional Apnea Wiki, where I point out that supine sleeping is not necessarily the problem, it is chin tucking.  Different people may experience worse apnea or flow limitation in supine, side or prone sleeping, but too many think that the cure is to get everyone off their back.  That is not always or even most often the case.
