If you have mild - moderate obstructive sleep apnea and aren't ready for a CPAP machine or just need a travel alternative, the Bongo RX Sleep Therapy device may be for you. The Bongo RX does not require any power supply which makes ideal for travel. Unlike Provent and Theravent or other nasal snoring strips, the EPAP device is reusable and small enough to fit in your pockets so you can use it anyplace.
The Bongo RX is an FDA-cleared and TGA registered sleep apnea treatment (OSA) and snoring. During inhalation, small valves open to allow normal breathing through the device. During exhalation, the valves close and direct exhaled air through small vents to generate EPAP, which keeps the airway open. Resistance Between Theravent Max Snore Therapy and Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy. Studies show the treatment efficacy is equivalent to Provent.
Replacement nasal seals will need to be purchased every 90 days to continue receiving the full benefits of the Bongo Rx. Please Note: This device will NOT work effectively if you have an AHI above 30 which is referred to as Severe Sleep Apnea. AHI is the number of pauses in breathing per hour plus the number of periods of shallow breathing per hour.
If you have used Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy, or a similar product, you may want to give these a go as well or if you have mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea you may find these helpful.
Please consult with your physician to see if Bongo Rx Sleep Therapy is right for you.
