There is no realistic alternative. You stop breathing at night with atrial fibrillation, you increase your chances of fatal disease many times. Raising your head on pillows will not help in the least. The only alternative is to have a permanent tracheostomy - that is to say a hole put into your throat. I think CPAP is a better option.
