I use a swing arm I made about 5 years ago, it work good for me.  It holds the tubing right above my pillow.  I tried linking a pic but this site want let me.  If you send me your email I'll send it to you.  Good luck!

I like the above connection of the hose it swivels 360 degrees. They come in cradle, pillows and full face masks.

I position the hose so it runs down my chest and then sideways to the machine, under my arm. With that positioning, I can turn over freely without tugging on the mask. My arms keep the hose constrained. I do use a hose cover for comfort.

Maybe it's many years of practice, but I manage to change position frequently (arthritis and prostatitis) while managing the hose without a hose hanger or similar. sometimes I am aware of turning over while moving the hose, but mostly I'm not.

I have the machine below my bed with a corner of the hose tucked under my pillow; the rest joins me in bed.
