Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0008301

NCI Thesaurus Code: C50494  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Finding

NCIt Definition: Interference with respiration by compression or obstruction of the larynx or trachea.

MEDLINEPLUS Definition: 

Food or small objects can cause choking if they get caught in your throat and block your airway. This keeps oxygen from getting to your lungs and brain. If your brain goes without oxygen for more than four minutes, you could have brain damage or die.

Young children are at an especially high risk of choking. They can choke on foods like hot dogs, nuts and grapes, and on small objects like toy pieces and coins. Keep hazards out of their reach and supervise them when they eat.

When someone is choking, quick action can be lifesaving. Learn how to do back blows, the Heimlich maneuver (abdominal thrusts), and CPR.

NICHD Definition: Interference with respiration by compression or obstruction of the larynx or trachea.
