application techniques Cough
A cough is the body's reaction to an irritation in the respiratory system, whether the irritation lies in the throat, lungs or bronchial tubes. Coughs help to expel mucus, bacteria and other irritating substances from the respiratory tract. Usually a cough signals a viral or bacterial infection, such as a cold. It can also be a respiratory infection such as whooping cough or pneumonia.
