How can I set the air pressure raise up gradually?

How can I set the air pressure raise up gradually?
I have set my dreamstation machine to CPAP mode and air pressure is fixed in 11. But the air pressure is found starting in 11, not raise up gradually from  low pressure.

 How can I set the air pressure start from 5 and gradually raise up to 11?

Thank you!

I start mine at that level. What you are talking about is the ramp. We suggest that you do not use the ramp unless you really need it, and then keep it as short as possible.

Hi Kevin,
If it's hard for you to adapt to the pressure right now, then go ahead and use ramp.  But try to keep it for a short period of time, (under 30 min). And instead of starting ramp at 5, I would try it at 7cm. Most of us don't use ramp after getting used to the pressure.

Order the Clinicians manual for your machine. There will be directions for using and setting ramp.
