The first two breaths are setup breaths so that he device can calculate training parameters used to set up an ideal variable load training profile. The setup breaths will always be set at a very low load of 3cmH20 and count as a part of your overall training session. Breaths 3 and 4 are set at a gradual percentage of calculated training load, for consistency the device will not allow you to increase or decrease the load until after breath 5.
