Description

OSA TREATMENT WITHOUT THE MASK
No mask or machine required, the Bongo RX is a small, discreet device that can fit in the palm of your hand. The Bongo RX works by using EPAP (Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure) therapy to treat mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Once the device is inserted, upon inhalation, the valves in the cones open allowing you to breathe in normally. Upon exhalation, the valves close creating a more narrow outlet for the exhaled air to pass though which in turn creates the pressure that is needed to keep your airway open for the next inhalation.

SIMPLE TO USE
Using the Bongo RX is simple, just insert the device into the nostrils and breathe! On top of being simple to use, the Bongo RX is reusable and can be used for up to 90 days with proper cleaning.

4 SIZES INCLUDED FOR A CUSTOM AND COMFORTABLE FIT
The Bongo RX Starter Kit includes 4 different sizes of silicone insterts; Small, Medium, Large & Extra Large, so you can try each one and find which size works best.

IDEAL FOR HOME & TRAVEL
The Bongo RX device is small enough to slip into a purse or pocket, making it ideal for travel, but they're comfortable and effective too so they're great at home. Bongo RX does not require a machine or make noise so you and your partner can sleep better together. And the Bongo RX device does not require electricity, giving you the freedom to sleep anytime, anywhere.

    Size small seems larger than the size medium so perhaps the imprint on the unit is stamped incorrectly

    I’m severe with 50 ahi an hour. Bongos seems to have cut that down to 8 during my sleep study. Dr. still wants me on CPAP which brings me down to 5 ? I’m keeping my Bongos for backup

    Neither my custom dental appliance nor the Bongo RX stopped my reported snoring. My OSA was minimal, so disappointing these less-than-CPAP devices couldn't help.

    I ordered the starter kit and very quickly DirectHomeMedical contacted my physician for the Rx. It was shipped within 2 days. That's really fast service. What I really like also is that they are not hounding me with daily emails and requests to buy more items. Pretty simple purchase and the device works!

    I love this device! I was diagnosed with sleep apnea a two years ago. I decided to try the Bongo first before CPAP and I was hooked! I love that it’s so easy to use and since I’m not just a back sleeper, I have the ability to sleep on my sides and stomach and I don’t have to worry about hoses or a mask. Can’t say enough good things about the Bongo. Most importantly I get a great nights sleep and I have a lot of energy throughout the day.

    I truly believe that I have found a solution for my sleep apena. I am claustrophobic and could not tolerate the sleep mask. I started out by reading in bed, using the Bongo,alterating between my nose and mouth. Then, I took a nap with the Bongo still in. From the very first night, I have been to sleep with it in. Now, to ask for a sleep study to see if it is working.

    Ok…so I will start by telling you I was a Provent customer and never really liked that I had to peel the skin iff my tender nose every morning for two years. I started back on CPAP when they quit selling it. That lasted about 6 months until a sleep doctor asked if I had tried the Bongos. Why didn’t anyone tell me about this product last year? It’s not perfect but better than my Provent. I wear two different sizes because my left side is a little bigger. I had to cut them in the middle so I could wear the different sizes and I can’t wear the head strap with it. Still, I’ve had two months of sleeping through the night without getting up to use the bathroom 4 times a night! My app says I’m not snoring and my pulse ox is reading 98 at night! I never got over 96 on my CPAP and didn't have watch gear for Provent. I haven't figured out how to reorder two sizes yet so I need to look into that. Too pricey to order 2 full year boxes.

    I was very surprised how soon I acclimated to Bongos. I tried Provent and just couldn’t breathe with it. Even falling asleep with my mouth open didn't help because I would wake as soon as my mouth closed in sleep. I didn’t even have to do that with Bongo. The pillow keeps my sinuses more open and It’s just so much more comfortable. I do need my strap, though, because I’ve knocked the device out if my nose twice now. Still, this is so much better than the CPAP collecting dust in my closet. I’m not ashamed to bring my bongo with me to my partners in case I stay over. He’s actually over the moon that I don’t snore or toss around all night. Almost 3 weeks now and I can’t sleep without it now. One thing though, my insurance doesn’t cover this so it might be 2 or 300 every year now. It would be nice if it were free.

    Easy to breathe in but extremely difficult to exhale through your nose. You have to work to force the air out of your nose. My sleep doctor said to breathe in and out through your mouth until you fall asleep and then this will work. Focusing on it makes it difficult to fall asleep and goes totally against everyone saying to breathe through your nose.

    I was running out of There ENT, received the bongo after a few attempts at the other stop snoring devices. Seems to be working, wife is not nudging me to roll over. Wish I could donate the 2 sizes I never used.

    I have always hated the air blasting my eyes and mouth while I sleep. I wore a chin strap and covered my eyes too, but I still woke up with dry eyes, mouth sores (from the air drying out my mouth), and I felt tired. I found the BongoRX and asked my doc to sign the script DirectHomeMedical has on their site and he said OK. Yes, it was difficult to get used to, but I hated the dry eyes, mouth sores, and strap marks so I worked at it. OK, I admit it, I hated having my hair broken off and pulled out. Sure that's the least important reason, my looks. But if you are honest, no one likes it. My red, puffy eyes, sore mouth, and thinning hair drove me to find something else. 1. I started with the eXciteOSA to help - and it's working, so I am still using it. 2. I got the BongoRX and said goodbye to the head gear, goggles, mouth tape, and chin strap! Sadly, I still feel a little tired, just like I did with CPAP, but my hair is growing back, no chin straps, dry mouth, dry eyes, puppy bags under my eyes, or strap marks on my face. The BongoRX is not perfect, it's difficult to get used to, but it's worth the effort. Put it this way, the same results as far as energy and sleep, with less cost, easier to use, no headgear, no strap marks, no more red puffy eyes, or dry mouth. I have been freed from CPAP!

    So the Bongos RX was twice as much as another device I was going to use. My nurse practitioner told me this was the one all the doctors there said to recommend so I splurged. Glad I did. This device is a dream to use and after starting, I finally sleep my 7 hours quietly and I didn't need the machine.

    So after going back and forth, I tried two sizes and ended up with the small one. after my third night, I have to say this little device is a keeper! Am I ready to completely give up my Auto CPAP? No, not completely. I still want to know how I did and my machine tells me. I'll save Bongo for date nights. My boyfriend said I didn't snore and I sleep through the night.

    I have used Provent for about 6 years and it helped me greatly. This device has two parts one for each nostril. The right one keeps falling out. I can tell I am not sleeping well because I get sleepy in middle of the day and I never used to do that. Also mind is foggy.

    Was very worried about a substitute for my provent which I used for years. They stopped making it so I had to find another option. Bongo seemed like the closest thing and it has been very good!!

    I've used Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy successfully for years; but I have now run out and I guess it is discontinued? So I'm now using Bongo and it's not quite the same; but it's not bad. I also love that it is reusable so there is less waste. Glad I found it. Thanks.
