Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) affects about 26% of Americans aged 30 to 70 but remains undiagnosed in most patients. Dr. Ronald A. Popper now offers Bongo Rx as an FDA-cleared substitute to patients who cannot tolerate CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) therapy.
While insomnia and narcolepsy are more recognizable, some patients do not know they suffer from OSA until after they experience long-term, regular fatigue. A sleeping partner may also notice their breathing is irregular during sleep.
Patients from Oxnard can now consult with Dr. Popper, who can determine if their diagnosis indicates the need for a Bongo Rx EPAP (Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure) device. Unlike bulky CPAP equipment, Bongo Rx is compact, and portable, and does not require hoses, electricity, masks, filters, batteries, or cumbersome headgear.
Bongo Rx has undergone rigorous clinical testing and has soft silicone nasal seals. Small valves allow normal breathing while inhaling but close when a user exhales, pushing the air through scientifically designed vent holes that generate EPAP, keeping the airway open.
According to Dr. Popper and the team at the Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center, consistent use of the Bongo Rx device reduces the Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI), a key indicator of OSA.
Dr. Popper is Board Certified in Sleep Disorders Medicine by the American Board of Sleep Medicine and the American Board of Internal Medicine. He is a pioneer of independent sleep centers.
A recent patient stated, “Dr. Popper is the best sleep disorder specialist you can find! He is so knowledgeable in this area and has over 20 years of experience. You feel confident when you leave his office that you will be feeling a lot better after treatment. He is also a very friendly and caring doctor and is never impatient with questions or concerns.”
