What is Aspiration?


DEFINITION – What does Aspiration mean?

Aspiration refers to the inhalation of foreign entities into the airway.

BREAKING DOWN – Aspiration

Aspiration often refers to food or saliva being caught in your airway. It’s the age-old ‘your food went down the wrong way.’ Coughing often relieves it. However, some may experienced blocked airways, have difficulty breathing, or have heartburn.

What causes it? A lack of tongue control, an abnormal swallowing reflex, complications from throat surgery, dental issues, or certain disorders may contribute to aspiration.
