  This is the sound of a person with sleep apnoea

You stop breathing frequently when you are asleep. It happens many times every hour.
But you do not hear yourself.
However, your partner your family and even your neighbours do hear you.
They wait in anticipation for you to start breathing again.
Your sleep is unrefreshing and you will wake up still feeling tired.
Those hearing you may not get any sleep at all.
Is it dangerous? – IT CAN BE
Should you get it treated? – YES
