Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment

The innovative Bongo Rx is a sleek FDA-cleared EPAP device designed for the treatment of mild to moderate OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea). Its soft silicone nasal pillows form a seal just inside the nasal openings. When inhaling, small valves in the OSA nasal device open to allow you to breathe normally.

When exhaling, the valves close, which directs exhaled air through precisely sized vent holes to generate EPAP (Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure). This keeps your airway open until you inhale again, thereby reducing the effects of OSA.

Easy to Use

Simply insert the Bongo Rx EPAP device into the nostrils as 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. The starter kit includes all sizes to help you find the size that fits you best.

EPAP (Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure)

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

Consequences of Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious sleep disorder where a patient experiences pauses in breathing during sleep, which are associated with partial closure (hypopnea) or complete closure (apnea) of the throat (i.e. upper airway). Symptoms include loud snoring, morning headaches, and repeatedly waking up gasping or choking. Obstructive sleep apnea may increase the risk of multiple problems such as excessive daytime sleepiness and fatigue, impaired cognitive function, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and diabetes.

Bongo Rx for Sleep Apnea

The Bongo Rx Nasal EPAP device provides a convenient and effective treatment for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. The Bongo Rx works by creating back pressure, known as expiratory positive airway pressure or EPAP, when a patient exhales. This pressure keeps the airway from collapsing; the airway stays open until the next inhalation. An unobstructed airway allows for easy breathing and better sleep.
