(KTVI) – Can thunderstorms really create breathing problems for those of you with sleep apnea, asthma or emphysema? A 2010 Harvard study raised that possibility. John Pertzborn talked to Dr. Joseph Ojile of the Clayton Sleep Institute about what he has found.
Ojile said it is unkown why it occurs, but sleep apnea issues increase during storms. He told Pertzborn a few possibilities for why that happens.
