How does Bongo Rx work?
The Bongo Rx has soft nasal seals that seal within the nasal openings. During inhalation, small valves open to allow you to breathe normally through the device. During exhalation, the valves close directing exhaled air through specifically designed vent holes to generate EPAP (Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure), which keeps open the airway until you inhale again.
Has Bongo Rx been clinically tested?
Yes, clinical testing was conducted to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Bongo Rx and testing was reviewed by the FDA. Results demonstrated that the Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI) was significantly reduced while using the Bongo Rx compared to the patients’ baseline diagnostic. There were no serious adverse events.
How is Bongo Rx different than Provent?
While both devices produce EPAP, there are several key differences. The Bongo Rx has soft, silicone nasal seals instead of an adhesive seal. It is also reusable. The Bongo Rx acts as a nasal dilator. The Bongo Rx comes in 4 different sizes. The Bongo Rx has both lower inspiratory and expiratory resistance.
