Rise time is the time it takes for the device to change from EPAP to IPAP. This screen allows you to adjust the rise time so you can find the desired setting. This is only available if Flex has been disabled and the device is in Bi-level or Auto Bi-level mode.
• 0 (off) reduces the Rise Time feature to the lowest setting (off = 150 msec).
• 1 sets Rise Time to 1 (200 msec).
• 2 sets Rise Time to 2 (300 msec).
• 3 sets Rise Time to 3 (400 msec).

So if you are still feeling the machine rushes you to the next inhale, a higher rise time will slow that transition from EPAP to IPAP.

Been using B-flex with my new System one 760. Want to try the flex, but do not know how to translate the rise time settings other than trial and error. I prefer longer breaths, but occasionally find myself not breathing. Short one time instances of non breathing documented 3 nights in past week.

Decided the flex would be better to prevent this. Never had a machine that documented this before, so new to me!
Found a link on Google from several years ago to this site and my question! Will try it...
