I just received an auto-adjusting machine and nose pillow mask, and every time I drifted off to sleep last night the machine made a sudden blast of air, very unexpected and startling. (I didn’t sleep well, needless to say).

Is that normal? How does one get accustomed to this? Thank you!

These machines typically have a ramp function and at the end of the ramp period they switch to auto mode and there may be a pressure increase. Can you say more about what brand the machine is and the model? Do you know if the ramp function has been set up on it?
