Allison LoGrasso’s long untreated apnea caused pulmonary hypertension, but a nurse who performed CPR helped save the day, reports the Boston Globe.

She also said she hopes the incident gets people thinking about how they sleep.

“There’s a lot of public awareness about the signs of stroke and cardiac issues, but not a lot about sleep apnea and what destruction it can cause on your body,” she said.

“People say ‘I snore, but it’s nothing,’ but it does have the potential of being a critical event,” LoGrasso added.
