Hi there, thanks for asking. If you think he snores and has breathing stop episodes and eventually has an apnea, the best way to control the situation before going to a doctor is to help him not sleep on his back. There are some shirts which have some bumps on their back. They prevent the person wearing to lie on his back. You can also encourage him to lose weight. If he loses 20 to 30 pounds, it can help him not have apnea. I hope this helps him. I wish the best for your family.
