Patients should purchase the Bongo RX starter kit to determine the right size then purchase a replenishment pack in their correct size.

The Bongo Rx is an EPAP (expiratory positive airway pressure) device and works as follows:

  • During inhalation, small valves open to allow you to breathe normally through the device.
  • During exhalation, the valves close and direct exhaled air through small vents to generate EPAP, which keeps the airway open until you inhale again.

How does Bongo Rx work?

Bongo Rx has soft silicone nasal pillows that form a seal just inside the nasal openings. It is an Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP) device and works as follows:

  • During inhalation, small valves open to allow natural breathing through the device.
  • During exhalation, the valves close, which directs exhaled air through small vent holes to generate EPAP, this keeps your airway open until you inhale again – thereby reducing the effects of OSA.

Bongo Rx Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure Therapy

The two primary mechanisms designed in Bongo are expanding the nares increasing the volume inhalation capacity and creating EPAP during exhalation acting as a pneumatic splint inflating the airway in much the same way CPAP does.

How is Bongo Rx different than Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy?

While both devices produce EPAP, there are several key differences. The Bongo Rx has soft, silicone nasal seals instead of an adhesive seal. It is also reusable. Bongo Rx acts as a nasal dilator. Bongo Rx comes in 4 different sizes. The Bongo Rx has both lower inspiratory and expiratory resistance.

What types of patients may benefit from the Bongo Sleep Apnea Therapy Device?

  • If you have mild to moderate OSA, but are non-compliant with CPAP and looking for a user-friendly option, The Bongo sleep apnea therapy device may be just what you need.
  • If you are compliant with CPAP, but would like to have an alternative CPAP therapy option for use while traveling, camping, at home, or any place electricity may not be available, Bongo Rx will fit the bill.
  • Newly diagnosed mild to moderate OSA patients without significant co-morbidities.

Will you need a prescription for the Bongo Rx?

No, you do not require a prescription for the Bongo Rx. Please consult with your physician to see if Bongo Rx is right for you.

How to determine the correct size for the Bongo Rx?

The Bongo Rx All Sizes Starter Kit includes all 4 sizes and allows the patient to take their time at home finding the size that fits them best. We recommend that you try all four sizes before selecting your final size. 

Has BongoRX been clinically tested?

Yes, clinical testing was conducted to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Bongo Rx and testing was reviewed by the FDA. Results demonstrated that the Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI) was significantly reduced while using the Bongo Rx compared to the patients’ baseline diagnostic. There were no serious adverse events.

How long will it take to get used to Bongo Rx ?

Like other EPAP devices, Bongo Rx may take a few nights to get used to. Remove the device if you wake up during the night and feel uncomfortable. This may occur for 1-2 weeks until you become accustomed with wearing the device, but will feel less invasive through consistent use.
