First Nation Group Partners with AirAvant Medical

First Nation Group Unites with AirAvant Medical to Launch New Alternative Sleep Apnea Treatment, Bongo® Rx EPAP

First Nation Group is proud to partner with AirAvant Medical to launch their flagship product, Bongo® Rx, a nasal Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP) device used to treat mild to moderate cases of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This FDA-cleared and clinically proven technology is designed for comfort and ease of use, requiring no machine, hoses, electricity, or batteries. Bongo Rx EPAP, a prescription device, promotes uninterrupted breathing throughout the night as an alternative sleep therapy for Government customers serving Veterans with OSA.

“The Bongo Rx product from AirAvant Medical offers clinicians a unique option for treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea. First Nation Group is proud to partner with AirAvant Medical and broaden sleep therapy portfolio to ensure more Veterans have the opportunity to use and be complaint with their therapy.”

Glenn Munroe, Senior Vice President of Business Development, First Nation Group

The innovative Bongo Rx is designed with soft silicone nasal pillows that seal just inside 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 your airway open until you inhale again.
