Having difficulty adjusting to CPAP

Don't give up on ramp, just raise the starting ramp to a comfortable level. Ramp start pressure is independent of min pressure.
Dont-know  I am an accountant so any advice given here is not medical. If I give any financial advice, you can take it to the bank. However, you will have a hard time cashing it in. Okay

Consider using the full auto setting and letting it help you. I have my high pressure set to 20. It has never reached that but it has gone above my prescribed settings.

Auto CPAP is great.
