Welcome to Apnea Board,

I think your EPAP minimum is a bit low, likely causing air starvation. This in turn makes it harder for you to keep the mask on. I would increase this to 5 or 6 and see if this helps.

Later, you may also need to reduce pressure support at least for a while. This appears to be the source of your CA.

Lastly, you need to increase how long you keep your mask and therapy on. To help, I think you need some time sitting with the mask and PAP on while reading or watching TV to get used to the mask.

I have another question, should i use the ramp time option?

During ramp you will NOT be getting therapy so no turn off ramp.

Agreed, I found Ramp to be less than helpful. It adds disruptions and takes away therapy time. Besides, with your low start pressure as it is, Ramp most likely isn't necessary.
