Incline bed
#11
RE: Incline bed
OK, a bit more serious, my extra bad back requires use of a hospital bed and air mattress. It has power head and foot tilt/incline. Even though I'm mostly a left side sleeper, I tilt the head several degrees and raise the foot a bit to raise my legs.

RE: Incline bed
As a side note where can I see what a good leak and flow limit rate look like?

RE: Incline bed
I recently got a new bed, and it came with the incline-ability. I slept with it slightly inclined, and it wrecked my back. So I went to the chiro and got fixed, and he said the incline mattress supporter things (replaces the boxspring) are really hurting people's backs.

RE: Incline bed
On the leak rate and flow limit:

There's likely actual examples, but I'll just comment for now, flow limit best case would be a graph that has a flat zero line equalling no FL.

Leak rate graphs can include the ResMed allowed amount of 24 L/min and I think Respironics uses 40 L/min. However, being at those numbers suggest you have leaks that need addressed or therapy would likely suffer. Ideally, no leaks over the required venting amount is best. That doesn't mean it must be there, but as low as you can get it with consistency is a good target.
