In brief: You might have

Aspirated gastric contents into your respiratory system, even down into lung.
Get to a doctor so he can determine whether you did or not, it can be serious. You can get aspiration pneumonitis, a serious condition. But what is more concerning is why you vomited in the first place.

In brief: Vomit during sleep

This sounds like a significant medical emergency.
I would hope that you have gotten health care by now. One can die if they inhale the vomit during their sleep.
