We’ve all coughed before, but have you ever stopped to wonder what a cough actually is?
In a nutshell:
A cough is an explosive release of air from the lungs, brought on by the body’s sudden reflex to clear the throat or airways of foreign microbes, irritants, fluids or mucus.
Did you know?
The velocity of air from a vigorous cough can approach upwards of 800 km/hour. No wonder prolonged, intense coughing is so exhausting!
