Petro, that's utterly crazy and downright irresponsible. Block one's mouth and then if the nose becomes blocked, one dies.
why do you think the coroner said the tampons in his nostrils contributed to him suffocating during sleep?
If you believe that humans can breathe through their mouth during sleep, then why do you think the coroner said the tampons in his nostrils contributed to him suffocating during sleep?

Okay, but how could tampons in your nose contribute to you suffocating during sleep? So far nobody has been able to give an answer to that.
Turns out that scientists and doctors have proven that the Mark Gleeson story has been made up. Humans breathe through their mouths if they can't breathe through their nose. Nobody's died from a blocked nose. There's not a single case of it reported on NIH or in medical journals.
Although uncommon, it is possible to die during sleep from untreated obstructive sleep apnea. Observational research has found that OSA increases a person?s risk of sudden death. This risk is believed to be higher in people of older age, in people with a critical illness, and in people with severe OSA.Most of the time pauses in breathing from obstructive sleep apnea are just temporary. When changes in respiration cause oxygen levels to drop, a person partially awakens in order to restore breathing. However, there are rare reports of people dying because of an inability to properly reinitiate breathing.When OSA is not treated, it can also interfere with the normal functions of the cardiovascular and nervous systems. This may provoke abnormalities in a person?s heart rhythms and other problems that can cause sudden cardiac death.
