Bongo RX is a nasal Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP) device that treats mild to moderate OSA. It is designed to help alleviate the effects of OSA by generating EPAP when the user exhales, to keep the airway open until they inhale again.

When inserted, the nasal pillows form a seal just inside the nose. The device has small valves that open and close to allow normal breathing. As the user exhales, the valves close and direct the air through precisely sized holes to generate EPAP. This prevents the airway from collapsing until the user inhales again.

Seeking treatment for OSA is crucial as it can lead to more serious health risks if left untreated. While Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) devices are most commonly used for OSA therapy, many patients are non-compliant due to feelings of claustrophobia and mask irritation. The Bongo Rx device is a good alternative for users who find such discomfort.

The device’s portability makes it less restrictive as compared to other OSA therapy devices, as it can be used anywhere. It does not require a machine, humidifier, hose, batteries or electricity.

Dr. Popper, who is certified in Sleep Disorders Medicine by the American Board of Sleep Medicine and American Board of Internal Medicine, specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders like snoring, sleep apnea and narcolepsy.
