In brief: Prevention
It would be optimal to prevent these occurences altogether if possible; but quick suctioning would be the most immediate remedy.
Adequate hydration would also assist the body in preventing this; but if there is still concern, or if a cough/change in breathing pattern develops then seek urgent medical attention!
