Adjusting machine sensitivity to release air in response to a weaker inhale?

Adjusting machine sensitivity to release air in response to a weaker inhale?
Hello,

My issue is with inhale sensitivity; halfway during my sleep my inhales get weaker, likely due to heartburn (I use a nasal pillow mask and my nose gets stuffy), and I suspect the machine is not picking them up and I wake up in an odd position in the middle of the night. 

Is there a setting that can be adjusted to change the trigger sensitivity of the machine, so that it releases air more easily /  in response to a weaker inhale? 

I would be useful to know the name of this setting and whether it exists on Resmed S9 and S10 machines.

Those settings exist on ResMed BiLevel machines.
