Dear Michelle

Your dad will need a full ENT examination to evaluate for the possibility of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome, as well as obstuctive breathing due to a blocked nose. The cause needs to be established to initiate treatment. To prove possible sleep apnoea, he may need a sleep study to prove the latter. Only an examination can establish this.
