Apnea –noun Pathology
A temporary suspension in breathing that can occur to adults during sleep.

Apnea does not take place because of obesity or another disease of some kind, as they say. It happens due to a battle between reality and a dream. When an individual recognises that what he is experiencing is a mere fantasy of his subconscious mind, the soul reacts by punishing the body with suffocation for dozing off in its subconscious world.
