as tempting as that thought is, a headboard with any kind of cabinet in it would make our very long bed even longer.... bedroom is sizable, but not shaped right for that Big Grin We have talked about a pillow topped chest at the end of the bed - same issue - plus if the feet weren't hanging down over the edge he might not feel right at all!!!

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

You can simply put a hook on the wall then attach the hose to it with some sort of bungee or rubber band. Or even string. Headboard isn't necessary.

or if you are designing something, maybe incorporate a drone into it, then you will not need a ceiling fan.

I like it. I can even keep my Glock close at hand.

I too always have my Glock close by! Mike, they are mags not clips! Something to hold the hose above your head will help. I use the CozyHoze Boss. It works great!

I decided to get fancy with the wifes and my machines. Mines on an old toy box about foot below the bed and hers is on a upside down milk crateLaugh-a-lot

We have one of the old fashioned steel frame beds. The head of it is steel also and rounds down at the sides so hooking hoses up there wasnt possible until again I got high tech.

Took a heavy duty zip tie and put one on each side of the steel head frame with the stiff excess sticking up. Big Grin Loop the hose over that and it stays put but if to much pressure like a yank on it itll pop off giving another foot and half of slack before moving the machines. Plus good yank on the mask as it does which will wake us up.

Nothing one cant do with zip ties duct tape, milk crates, velcro. Hect they supposedly went and landed on the moon in a rig held together with velcro. Should hold a cpap machine down Dielaughing

If you do put the machine inside an enclosure of some kind, you might want to consider what would happen if the humidifier leaks. Make sure it's not going to rot some wood, grow mold, or collect and drown the machine.

My hubby started using a CPAP, "the brick", in 2003 and got his current APAP in 2014. He has never pulled his machine off the nightstand at home, nor off the milk crate stand when we spent a month traveling in our motorhome. He HAS pulled the hose off the mask once or twice.

Our APAPs sit a few inches below the top of the mattress and, so far, we have not noticed any movement. No duck tape or velcro, etc. But, if we noticed any movement at all we would probably try a bungee cord or duck tape then velcro.
Evpraxia in the Pacific Northwest USA
Diagnosed: 44 AHI when supine, O2 down to 82%
Treated since 20 Sept 2014:: 0.7 AHI, Settings 7-15, EPR on Full Time at Level 3
Better living through CPAP/APAP machines!

Ghost is most definitely an engineer. I recognize the tools of the trade, including the engineering tape. At least that's what we call it.
