MY husband died from sleep apnea

by Monika

Perry, my husband and devoted father of our 5 young children, had severe sleep apnea - he was chaperoning a field trip and had his own private room.

He woke up too early, used the bathroom, and lay back down on hus bunk, with nothing to do.
He accidentally fell back asleep, and moments later, he was dead.

Our 10 year old son went in to wake him up, but Perry never did.

Classified as: "Sudden Death"

If any of you CPAP users have not had an echocardiogram, you better order one immediately - it could save your life. No matter how well you think your CPAP is working, you might have OSA-induced pulmonary hypertention while you sleep, causing an enlarged heart.

Save your life - use your CPAP every time you lie down, and get an echocardiogram.

Mine too NEW
by: Sarah

Last week my partner died of sleep apnea too. He was 30 years old and being a typical man he never sought proper treatment for it and brushed it of. I woke to find him dead at the side of me. I feel like i need to raise awareness for it and do something. He was fine before i fell asleep. I often woke with the sound of his loud snoring then he would gasp for breath, stop breathing then exhale. Never did i imagine it would kill him.

My husband died NEW
by: Chela Box

My husband died in his sleep 3 weeks ago, i woke up to find him gone beside me. Havent had investigation results yet, p/m was inconclusive. He did have sleep apnea, but drs were yet to start treatment.i believe he just stopped breathing, due to the apnea and never took his next breath. He died with no struggle and no sign of pain, in his sleep. he was 40 and leaves behind a loving family & children.id love to talk to others about their experience.

No words NEW
by: Sarah

Its been such a hard few weeks trying to coming to terms with this. I need to know how and why my man died. When i say its sleep apnea that did it people look with either shock that it actually kills people or they dont know what it is. Ive even had people say things like yeah my partner snores loud...how does that help me. I just sit on my bed and feel comforted there as that was where he went to sleep. I wish i could offer you words of comfort or advice but i cant.:"(
