Emphysema attacks?

I am wondering why my boyfriend who has been diagnoised with emphysema and sleep apnea wakes up in the middle of the night having seizures and cant breathe even after he has used a rescue inhaler... He often stops breathing and I have to revive him mildly? We have tried propping him up when he sleeps but to no avail... Ive never had to deal with this before and I am curious as to how I can help him breathe easier... He also has a C-pac which makes him choke more so he isnt able to use it...
