Incline bed

Incline bed
Hey guys so my bed is at a 6-9 inch incline and I was wondering if there will be any issue with doing cpap on that incline. Will my chin be more likely to hit my chest?

If your device is on that incline, and with a humidifier, then yes, you could have a problem. Just you, no problem.

Sleepgains,
I've been sleeping on an an incline for over 5 years with no issues at all. As long as your not on your back too much and that you pillows aren't real thick and puffy, you should be fine.

What do you think of no pillow at all?

Probably should be OK. I'd chalk that to personal preference.

RE: Incline bed
I have slept in an inclined position (adjustable bed) for 5+ years now. Have tried pillows, no pillows, and a round roll pillow. I found the round roll pillow worked best for me since I started xPAP. It's ~8" diameter and ~14" long. Followed by no pillows which was so-so. Using a regular pillow I found my chin tucking too often. Tried the soft cervical collar as recommended here but it wasn't for me.
Try different things and see what works best for you.

If you need the following sign for your inclined bed, you're tilting it a bit too much

RE: Incline bed
Only time I've slept in an incline bed, was back in Nov. of 2016, when I had a total right knee replacement. My surgeon did not want me sleeping on my side for a few nights.

I didn't need or require any pain meds, and I slept okay from what I can recall. It was only a 2 night stay in the hospital. Other than that experience, I don't think that I could sleep in an incline bed, as I am a side sleeper.
