Hello … I want to ask if you choke on jelly when you drink iced coffee jelly, is there any possibility that the jelly will go down your throat? Today I drank iced coffee jelly and accidentally sucked the jelly until it choked but the jelly didn’t come out of my mouth but was immediately swallowed

Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com


Choking on food or foreign objects can be fatal if the incoming objects are large enough and can block the airway, a person can experience severe shortness due to lack of oxygen due to airway obstruction. Besides choking can also cause airway injury to respiratory infections (aspiration pneumonia), if salty objects are trapped in the human respiratory system.


However, on the other hand, in a healthy condition humans have a fairly strong and complex body defense mechanism, one of which is the presence of a cough reflex to encourage food or foreign objects when entering the respiratory tract, as well as the presence of respiratory hair components, mucous membranes, and components immune system which also maintains airway safety.


If you do not feel symptoms such as abnormalities when breathing (difficulty breathing, rapid breathing, breathing sounds), fever, weakness, coughing, chest pain, then you don't need to worry. However, if you experience the symptoms above, you should immediately consult a doctor to get further examination and treatment related to your condition


So much information from me, hopefully it helps
