If this has only happened once, then I wouldn't worry about it. If it has happened more often, then it can be a sign of heart trouble, such as congestive heart failure. It can also be a sign of COPD (Coronary Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) or even emphysema. It is something that needs to be treated by a doctor.

Quitting smoking would also be a good idea.
