Millions of people suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).

If you are one of them, and if left untreated, this sleep disorder can have a major negative impact on your health and quality of life.

Has your bed partner told you that your snore? Do you awaken gasping for air in the middle of the night? Think you sleep well, but are still feel tired throughout the day?

Loud snoring, repeated gasping during sleep, daytime sleepiness, and fatigue may be symptoms of sleep apnea.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder that occurs when your throat muscles relax and collapse during exhalation. As a result, your airway becomes obstructed– blocking normal inhalation. When this happens, your brain signals your body to wake up.

These involuntary ‘apnea events’ cause you to stop breathing many times every hour. Therefore, you are robbed of restful sleep. In addition, your blood oxygen level is significantly lowered.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea can lead to serious problems like excessive daytime sleepiness and fatigue, impaired cognitive function, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and diabetes.

If you experience one or more of these symptoms listed below, you may suffer from obstructive sleep apnea.

  • Loud snoring

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

People with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) experience the collapsing of the airway during sleep. As a result, this causes a decrease or a stop in airflow during sleep, despite an ongoing effort to breathe.  Symptoms include loud snoring, abrupt awakenings accompanied by gasping and choking, morning headaches, and excessive daytime sleepiness.

Breathe Easy With Bongo Rx

Bongo Rx new CPAP alternative treatment for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea opens your airway. When you breathe out, exhaled air is directed through vents designed to generate EPAP. Therefore, your airway stays open until you breathe in. Most importantly, this process promotes uninterrupted breathing throughout the night.

Place Bongo Rx Inside Nostrils

Simply insert the Bongo Rx EPAP device just inside the nostrils. There are no hoses or mask to deal with in this simple sleep apnea nasal device. The soft silicone inserts will form a positive seal within the nasal openings to create nasal dilation.

The starter kit includes all sizes to help you find the size that fits you best.

Breathe Normally

As you inhale, small valves in the Bongo EPAP device open, allowing you to inhale normally. Bongo Rx also acts as a nasal dilator, which helps open the nasal airway.

Exhalation Creates Positive Airway Pressure

As you exhale, the valves at the bottom of your Bongo Rx will close. This directs exhaled air through specifically-designed vent holes to generate positive airway pressure, which keeps your airway open until you breathe in again.

Bongo Rx Patient Testimonials

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for offering a solution for OSA that works! My CPAP was part of the Philips recall. My doctor and I took a chance on Bongo Rx. I’m happy to say that it works beautifully! I love the freedom from the tubing. I love that I don’t have those telltale strap lines across my face in the mornings until they fade. Best of all – I feel rested following a night of good sleep. This product is worth a try for anyone who uses a CPAP. I don’t plan to go back to the machine. Thanks, Bongo Rx!

“After 4 weeks of using Bongo, my quality of sleep is pretty good. I have recommended to several of my friends.”

“I have no problem falling asleep with Bongo and it is comfortable to wear throughout the entire night”

I want to congratulate AirAvant for producing what I consider the best alternative to a CPAP machine that I have tried! I have been using the device and have found it to work perfectly, very comfortable and I have no problem with using the device without the strap. You can be sure I will be recommending the Bongo to all my clients and friends that have sleep apnea!

“Bongo is 100 times better than my CPAP, which I just could not use.”

“Best sleep I have gotten. No wires, no hoses, so much better than a CPAP.”

“As a prior CPAP user, I am looking forward to getting my resupply pack of Bongos and continuing on with this therapy.”

Just wanted to let you know your Bongo device is amazing. I have tried CPAP, Provent and Theravent. Your EPAP device is hands down the best and very comfortable compared to the others. I am trying to find where to write a review because I want others to know about your product. It is great.

I have been using the Bongo Rx for about a year and it has completely changed my life. The device is really well made and extremely comfortable. The first few nights it can be hard to sleep but this will pass.   It’s a strange sensation but I can’t stress this enough, it is worth persevering. I am a different person now that I can sleep properly. I have energy that I hadn’t had for many years but being well rested also has a hugely verifiable effect on your mental well being. 

The bongo is brilliant for travel as well which is vital for me. It’s very easy to keep clean and extremely reliable. I could write more but honestly all you need to know is that if you have mild to moderate apnea and you can’t tolerate a mask, you travel a lot, or go camping, you should try this.

“Absolutely love Bongo and think it’s the greatest invention for OSA!”

“After using Bongo for a nights, I wake up feeling more rested than I can ever remember. I love this device.”

If any of these apply, Bongo Rx may be the perfect choice for you.


  • I have mild to moderate OSA
    • I stopped using my CPAP machine because of the noise, pressure, mask discomfort, or the inconvenience of sleeping with the CPAP tubing in the bed.
    • I cannot get a CPAP, my insurance company will not cover my CPAP machine and mask, or I have a high co-pay.
    • I think traveling with my CPAP machine is cumbersome, embarrassing or inconvenient.
    • I want to make sure I have a backup to my CPAP in case I’m in situations without power.
    • I’m not interested in other CPAP Alternatives that require surgery, implantable devices, or oral appliances, which can be invasive, uncomfortable, or expensive.
  • I think I might have OSA, but I have not been diagnosed. If I have OSA, I would prefer to use Bongo Rx versus a CPAP machine.
