Aspiration: Of fluids or small pieces of food can trigger cough reflex to expel the aspirated material going down the wind pipe, most of the time it gets expelled, at times though that might not happen and patient would choke or later have pneumonia, or rarely nothing happens at all and life goes on. Don't worry you are protectd
