how to prevent choking on mucus

My Dad Has Had Quite A Few Choking Episopes Recently But It Only Happens When He's Either Laying Down Or During His Sleep. He Woke Up From A Dead Sleep This Morning Choking And Gasping For Air. What Should We Do To Prevent This From Happening?

He should probably get checked for acid reflux. Your stomach acid backs up ino your esopheogus while lying down and can make you cough. It should be looked at he may need something for his stomach before he has problems. I think there is a site on here about acid reflux or GERD check it out you may see some similarities.
