Camarillo Sleep Apnea Therapy: Bongo Nasal EPAP Device CPAP Alternative Launched
With this announcement, sleep apnea expert Dr. Ronald Popper brings Bongo Rx therapy to patients in and around Camarillo. The Bongo EPAP (Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure) device uses the pressure of exhaled air to keep a user’s airway open without relying on electrical or battery-operated devices.

The expansion to Camarillo comes in response to the increased demand for a safe, portable, and effective way to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) at home, in the outdoors, or while traveling. Dr. Popper recommends this technology based on its efficacy across thousands of patients.
Over 30 million adults in the U.S. suffer from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder where a person breathes in starts and stops while they sleep. Patients snore loudly and feel tired despite getting a healthy amount of bedtime. Some patients will awake suddenly, their airway blocked, choking, and gasping for air. Daytime fatigue experienced by patients with severe sleep apnea can be dangerous if one needs to drive or operate heavy equipment.
Dr. Popper and his team at the Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center now use Bongo Rx to treat mild to moderate OSA without masks, hoses, and other cumbersome equipment. These EPAP nasal inserts are washable, reusable, and have soft silicone nose seals that allow a user to inhale normally. The device is designed with vents that direct expiratory pressure generated to keep the airway open, preventing the loss of breath. Bongo Rx has been clinically tested and is available in four sizes.
Patients can now receive face-to-face consultations and care from an expert at Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center. Experts can provide various sleep apnea treatments including CPAP machines, Inspire Therapy, and eXciteOSA Daytime Therapy.
