It depends.: This depends on what continuous pressure that can be set on your machine so that you can have airway flow when you don't inhale or exhale. CPAP is airway pressure that keeps the airway open without any aid or interference in a person's breathing, and no ventilator cycling. The person must initiate all breaths, hence the name continuous positive airway pressure. Try during breaths or see your dr.
