What is Choking?

When you breathe…

  • air goes through your nose or mouth,
  • and then down a tube called the trachea (sometimes called the “wind pipe”),
  • and then into your lungs.

What is Choking?

If food, or something else, gets into your wind pipe and gets stuck there, then the air you need cannot get to your lungs.

When that happens, you are choking.
