My 15 month old choked on water 3 times in the bath tub while trying to drink the water. Could he be at risk for dry drowning? This was 40 minutes ago

In brief: Dry drowning

The entity of dry drowning is not something that has been reliably verified as a clinical entity.
If your child choked on water in the bath tub while trying to drink it but did not suffer a pronged period of submersion, loss of consciousness, loss of respiratory effort or loss of pulse, and is not having trouble breathing currently, then it is unlikely to lead to adverse problems.
