Chuck Brandt of Merriam didn't know it, but he stopped breathing 75 times each hour when he slept. Despite being tired and unfocused during the day, the only other symptom he knew about was that he snored. "I have always snored to some extent, but ifs gotten worse in the last five to 10 years," said Brandt, 50, a computer programmer. Brandt said his snoring increased as he gained weight.
