At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more

Lungs not dry: As an isolated symptom, it's not likely to be any lung disease. Your lungs are certainly not dry. You can reassure yourself of this by exhaling on a mirror.

My 3 week old choked/strangled on vit D drops. If it got into her lungs, what will happen? Could it cause something like pneumonia or dry drowning?
Not really: It's unlikely that you will notice any sequelae from this little event. The reason we cough and "choke" - it's our body's way of protecting itself and trying to keep stuff out of the lungs. Even with this protection sometimes, rarely stuff will get by, but most of the time actually nothing ever occurs. The tiny amount of medicine given for infant Vit D drops is inconsequential. Relax. It's okay. ...Read more
