Hi I'll assume you mean "ramp".

Ramp time is the time taken to go from a low comfortable starting pressure to the prescribed treatment pressure. It's a comfort thing so you don't have to breath against the resistance of your treatment pressure straight away, but get eased into it.

Hi AlexBond,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Ramp is a feature that gradually increases your pressure for a time, anywhere from 5 to 45 minutes depending on where it is set. Some people find it useful when they first get started with CPAP therapy and others don't like it at all and turn it off.
Hang in there for more answers to your question and much success to you with your CPAP therapy.

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
