Snap, I don't think increasing the pressure will help you at all.
When you first turn on the machine, the ramp runs. It starts at 4. That's why you feel starved for air. That's also why when you wake up at night and think you're doing well, but get up then restart the machine, you are once again starving for air.
I know the DME told you that ramp only happens when you hit the button. But that's not the case.
Turn the ramp feature off, and you will be fine.
An update - just finished my 4th night. Still fighting the ramp issue but the rest is all good.
Interestingly I'm finding that I am sleeping about 7 hours now instead of the 9 I used to need. This is a big deal. I get 2 hours more in my day, 14 hours each week that I can do stuff, have fun, read books, work or any other dang thing that strikes my fancy. It's amazing to consider this...
2 hours per night that I reclaim as alert time
14 hours per week
56 hours per month
672 hours per year.
That's a WHOLE month!
I get to a whole extra month each year to do stuff!! What could you do with an extra month? The possibilities are astonishing.
