can you dry drown by having soda go down the wrong way and you didn't cough right away?

Dr. Clarene Cress
Specializes in Pediatrics
Depends on volume: of soda inhaled and sugar content, but not possible with just one swallow as cough reflexes usually prevent multiple. Unfortunately if one were really intoxicated or did not have normal reflexes, etc.one could get aspiration pneumonia, etc. which could leave one very ill. In a resuscitation, life saving meds are occasionally given into the trachea if iv access is not available.,
