Okay, going to try this one more time.

Quote:max ramp 45 min., start pressure: 6 (should this be lower?),

What you have done here is have the ramp run at 45 minutes at the same pressure the machine would be at anyway. So it is a useless setting.

You can only go lower to 4 or 5. And as I have said before, a ramp of just one or two points is also rather useless.

A ramp time of 45 minutes is really long. Do you take that long to fall asleep? Even if you do, breathing in that low amount of air, you are going to feel smothered.
