The Effect Of Choking On Insects?
At that time I was taking a breath, then I didn’t know that an insect was flying in front of my face, so when I took a breath, the insect was sucked in until I was choking, I tried to cough it couldn’t get out, would it have side effects? I don’t know what insects are, thank you
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The swallowing process is part of the digestive process, playing a role in getting the food in the oral cavity into the stomach through the esophagus. It is a complex matter, including the conscious and unconscious work of the nervous system, the chewing muscles and the upper digestive tract organs. When the food has been prepared to be swallowed, the epiglottis will fold downwards to cover the respiratory tract, so the food can pass through the esophagus and into the esophageal tract to be conveyed to the stomach. When someone eats while talking or laughing, the epiglottis does not completely cover the respiratory tract, as a result food can enter the respiratory tract and the person will choke as compensation from the respiratory tract to prevent food entry. This compensation is the work of the cilia and mucus that line the airways. However, it is possible that food with a very small size escapes and can enter the respiratory tract, this food will then be absorbed by the body. The same thing happens when an animal is ingested. These animals will not be able to survive because of the presence of saliva, cilia, respiratory mucus and stomach acid. Even these animals will be destroyed by the body along with food.
If the animal carries bacteria or viruses, it can cause illness such as coughing or diarrhea, if the immune system is unable to fight it.
However, if later you experience complaints of cough, diarrhea or fever, you can consult the nearest doctor to get the right treatment.
So much information from me, hope it is useful.
