A person quits breathing while sleeping…Obesity can be a cause…as well as deviated septum (like from a broken nose)…People who have it snore a lot and very loud…and then suddenly will just stop breathing…My husband has it, and when he stops snoring is when I wake up…

Apnea can harm the heart…it also makes the person who has it chronically tired, since they are missing out on much needed sleep…
