Bongo Rx Starter Kit and Annual Replenishment Pack by AirAvant Medical
The Bongo Rx is a unique sleep apnea therapy device that does not require any power, making it ideal for travel. This FDA-cleared nasal seal treats mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) without the need for a CPAP machine or a CPAP mask that can feel restrictive and confining. Unlike other nasal patches for sleep apnea, the Bongo RX can be used headgear-free so you can sleep with more freedom. To top it all off, it is small enough to fit in a shirt pocket so you can use it anytime and anywhere!
How Does the Bongo RX Work?
The Bongo RX is so easy to use and does not require power. This simple device uses soft nasal seals that fit just inside the nostril which allow air in and during exhalation, the valves close while venting holes generate EPAP (Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure) slowing the airflow down when exhaling which in turn will prop open your airway until you inhale again.
How to Use the Bongo RX
The starter kit for the Bongo RX comes with headgear, travel case, and four soft nasal seals in sizes S, M, L and XL. All you need to do is place the nasal seal inside your nostrils, making sure you have a good seal. You can either use them just like that or add the headgear for more stability.
Be sure to wash them in warm soapy water after each use.
Is the Bongo RX FDA Cleared?
Yes, it is cleared for treatment of mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
Has the Bongo Rx Been clinically tested?
Yes, clinical testing was conducted and demonstrated safety and effectiveness.
Why do I need a prescription for the Bongo?
All devices that treat obstructive sleep apnea are required to have an RX
Where is the Bongo RX made?
The Bongo is assembled in the USA from parts molded in the USA
Respshop Product Review
We are happy to introduce the Bongo by AirAvant to our family! If you have minor sleep apnea and are not quite ready for a CPAP and find CPAP Masks daunting, this may be a good solution for you. I was excited to try this when it came in because it looked like a very low-profile option and great for travel. I used the headgear that came with the Bongo which kept the nasal ports in place comfortably while I slept. The ports helped open my nasal passages allowing for air to flow in easily and then slowly let the exhalation out while keeping my airway open until my next inhalation. The ports stayed in well and were comfortable and what I like a lot is the ease of cleaning and the portability. If you have used Provent, a similar product, you may want to give these a go as well or if you have minor obstructive sleep apnea you may find these helpful. The Bongo may also make a great backup option!

How long is each Bongo expected to last?
If the RespShop is a preferred provider for the CPAP, is it possible for insurance to cover the cost of the Bongo?
Each Bongo lasts 3 months - so an annual pack contains 4 pairs.
Your insurance may cover the cost, but we do not offer direct billing - you'd have to bill them the invoice yourself.
The issue with the recalled CPAP model is that the foam was breaking down. This device does not have that issue but it is also a completely different form of therapy. Be sure to ask your doctor if it's appropriate and have them write a prescription.
