Hi I'll assume you mean "ramp".

Ramp time is the time taken to go from a low comfortable starting pressure to the prescribed treatment pressure. It's a comfort thing so you don't have to breath against the resistance of your treatment pressure straight away, but get eased into it.
Hi AlexBond,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Ramp is a feature that gradually increases your pressure for a time, anywhere from 5 to 45 minutes depending on where it is set. Some people find it useful when they first get started with CPAP therapy and others don't like it at all and turn it off.
Hang in there for more answers to your question and much success to you with your CPAP therapy.
