Put Certain Foods Into The Nostrils And Inhale Them?
What is the impact if someone puts certain foods into the nostrils and inhales until they feel they have been swallowed
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The nose is created as part of the respiratory tract. The anatomical structure of the nose has been designed so that it is ideal for the entry of air from outside into the body, and vice versa. In the walls of the nasal cavity is covered by mucous membranes (mucous membranes) which continuously produce mucus so that harmful substances do not enter the deeper respiratory tract, as well as so that the air that enters the body is kept moist.
Inserting certain foods into the nostrils and inhaling them should not be done. Food that enters the nasal cavity can trigger irritation so that the nose can feel sore, itchy, and produce excessive mucus. Not only that, inhaling these foods with strong potential also causes food not to enter the digestive tract, but rather to choke into the respiratory tract. This condition can be very dangerous, because it can cause pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma) aspiration, even death.
Clinically, people who experience these aspirations can look coughing, vomiting, like choking, shortness of breath, until bluish which indicates blockage of the airway due to the entry of foreign substances other than air. If this condition has occurred, the treatment needs to be done quickly and appropriately by a doctor or specialist in internal medicine to prevent dangerous complications.
Hope this helps ...
