Intervention Details:
    The BONGO NASAL EPAP device consists of two nasal inserts (a connected pair), each containing an actuated valve, with a patient attachment mechanism. The device works by providing an inhalation port that offers minimal inhale resistance during inhalation, but is closed by the actuated valve so that exhalation occurs against a fixed orifice. This mechanism provides increased EPAP upon exhalation.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Apnea Hypopnea Index [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
