AirAvant Medical Bongo Rx EPAP Starter Kit
AirAvant Medical Bongo EPAP Starter Kit Overview
There's a new way to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea! Bongo RX is an EPAP therapy device, a CPAP alternative using no tubes, masks, or a potentially noisy machine to treat mild to moderate sleep apnea. Upon inhalation, the valves in the Bongo RX open, allowing you to breathe in normally. When you exhale, the valves close, leaving a smaller outlet for the exhaled air to pass through, creating the pressure needed to keep your airway open for the next inhalation.
This revolutionary CPAP alternative treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea has been cleared by the FDA and is available by prescription only. The Bongo RX is a reusable device that's good for 90 days, lasting longer than other EPAP devices, and is intended to be cleaned and reused.

Maskless Sleep Apnea Treatment
Are you tired of the red marks and the frustration of waking up with messy hair? Is the noise of CPAP therapy more than you can stand? Are you thinking about giving up with your treatment? If so, consider switching from a machine and mask to the Bongo RX. The Bongo RX is designed to turn exhaled breath into a way to treat sleep apnea.
Improves Mild to Moderate Sleep Apnea
In order to use this product, you'll need:
- Mild (AHI of 5 to 15) or moderate (AHI of 15 to 30) sleep apnea
- To be able to breathe only through the nose while sleeping
That's it! By getting your airway open, you'll feel better and have more energy during the day, as your sleep apnea symptoms get reduced.
Discreet and Portable—Take Anywhere!
The Bongo RX is small enough to fit in a jacket pocket and doesn't use any power, cords, tubes, or wires. It's designed to create a seal around the base of the nostril, and it makes very little noise. You can safely use it on a plane or take it with you when traveling.
Starter Pack Includes S, M, L, and XL Sizes
Don't know what size nose cones you'll need? The Starter Pack helps you figure out what you'll need going forward by providing nose cones in each size. After your first 90 days, you'll need to order the Annual Pack, which will provide a year's supply of nose cones in the selected size.

The Bongo RX is FDA-Cleared for the treatment of mild to moderate sleep apnea. It's classified as "cleared" vs. "approved" because it's substantially equivalent to other EPAP devices on the market today.
FDA approval is reserved for items that are brand-new treatments, and carry the greatest amount of risk. Generally, these devices are Class III Medical Devices and undergo a very rigorous review process.
The Bongo RX is produced in the US from products molded in the US, and is a 100% American-made product.
The Bongo RX is designed for you to breathe in normally. Upon exhale, the valves in the Bongo RX close, leaving a smaller opening for the exhaled air to escape. This creates the EPAP pressure needed to open your airway.
I was very hopeful that this product would work for my Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome/ Mild Obstructive Sleep Apnea. When my sleep doctor prescribed it for me, it certainly sounded like an ingenious device. Unfortunately, it has not had any positive effect on me and my sleeping. I'm sad to add it to the pile of devices that I've similarly had no luck with. If the product could be returned I would still encourage people to try it and see if it worked for them, however with the no return policy it is very hard to recommend. more...
I’ve used Provent for about 12 years. Since they’ve gone out of business I’ve been forced to try this alternative. Works but is uncomfortable and invasive vs. Provent. It also tends to trap moisture which can be messy in the middle if the night or early morning. Better than a cpap...but not much. more...
Very expensive for 3 month use esp. for retired seniors. This device is not covered by medical insurance.

I have moderate sleep apnea. I’ve tried every CPAP mask possible and just couldn’t get the hang of it. The Bongo is so small. No hoses or headgear on my face. The device fits perfectly in my nose and that’s it. It does not make me feel claustrophobic. It stops my snoring completely. I wake up rested and refreshed! more...
Note- I previously have tried Provent with also a “good “ level of satisfaction, so this provides an opportunity for comparison with Bongo. The Bongo is clearly easier to use, because Provent is fairly difficult to apply for a good seal. It is also satisfying not to throw away a device each use. The downside is that if you do get a good seal with Provent, it seems its valves are more effective , with higher back pressure. This might be partly due to the fact that even with best sizing, one nare had some leakage. My theoretical ideal was a Bongo with the Provent valves. I even did an experiment with placing those valves within the Bongo tube which seemed to improve function. I recognize this is not wise for continued use due to possible aspiration of the valves. Perhaps the makers could collaborate on a combination? more...
