The problem your father is suffering from is known as Sleep Apnea, where pt finds difficulty in breathing during sleep due falling back of tongue into the throat. Being overweight, increases the tendency towards this problem. A clinical examination is advisable to plan a special appliance to reduce their discomfort. Apart from this, weight loss is highly recommended. Regards.
