How do I stop my husband from intense snoring? It is when he snorts abruptly that is most annoying.

In brief: Evaluation
He needs to be evaluated for sleep apnea.
Snoring plus snorting or gasping for air are concerning for sleep apnea. An ENT visit or a pulmonologist would be a good place to start.

In brief: Needs to be seen
He should be seen by a sleep specialist for a thorough evaluation of his sleep.
This can be an ENT (otolaryngologist), a neurologist, or a pulmonologist. In the meantime, he should not sleep flat on his back, but on his side or stomach, and side sleeping with some elevation is quite helpful.
