Is it possible that 'huffing' can lead to AMI. This is an issue with my ex and the custody of our children. He is also displaying signs of obstructive sleep apnoea. Apparently he has had a problem with huffing for several years. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • By AMI do you mean heart attack? If so, it depends on what he is huffing.
