Bongo Rx EPAP Device
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.
Fitting the Bongo Rx
The Bongo Rx All Sizes Starter Kit comes with four different sizes. Follow the instructions to find the size that forms a comfortable, stable seal inside your nose. We recommend that you try all four sizes before selecting a final size.
Cleaning the Bongo Rx
Since the Bongo Rx is designed to be reusable, it is important to keep your device clean. Follow the instructions to clean your device.
Using the optional headgear for Bongo Rx
If you are an “active” sleeper who moves around a lot while lying in bed, you may prefer the added security brought by the optional headgear accessory that comes standard with your Bongo Rx kit. Follow the instructions to use the Zero-TensionTM Headgear Accessory.

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.
