3 doctors agree

In brief: Yes, sleep apnea

Have your friend check the epworth sleepiness scale http://www.
Stanford.Edu/~dement/epworth.Html sleep tests can be performed in a sleep lab or with ambulatory sleep monitors which measure oxygen level, respiratory effort and nasal airflow. If airflow is decreased or is blocked by throat closure more than 5 times/hour, he has sleep apnea and can be treated with CPAP -continuous + airway pressure.

Snoring and restless sleep are signs of sleep apnea.
