If that is the case, people would feel sick in bed, but not when they left the room. Not because of the attack, but because of their altitude as the chemicals hang in low spaces.
Can you explain that last bit?

eta: oh, you mean that they'd be inhaling fumes when prone in bed, but when they got up and walked around, they'd have little more exposure
