Not everyone who snores has sleep apnea. However, when someone snores and gasps for air throughout the night, it's a strong possibility. The combination of snoring, gasping, and choking is the body's response to a struggle for oxygen. This may happen once per night or hundreds of times. Gasping or choking can be a sign of other health problems, so it is best to visit a doctor to understand the cause.
