Cough is one of the ways by which the body drives out excess mucus from the lungs and throat. The air passage of our body is lined with cells secreting the mucus that traps dust. When the cell membrane gets infected or inflamed, there is an increase in the secretion of mucus, which leads to the blockage of the passage. This blockage causes coughing, as a reflex action to remove the excess mucus. Cough can generally be classified into two types - productive cough, which produces mucus from the lungs, and non productive cough, also known as dry cough that does not produce any mucus from the lungs. Affecting people of all age groups, coughing can be acute or chronic, depending on its duration. Causes of cough could be inflammation of larynx or pharynx, smoking, exposure to allergens, like dust, smoke, pollen grains and chemical fumes, asthma, weather changes and acute/ chronic sinusitis. Symptoms Of cough could be coughing up phlegm that is green, rusty brown or yellow in colour, blood-stained or foul smelling, raised temperature, aching muscles, pain in the throat, wheezing and shortness of breath.

Respire means breathing & Respiration is when you breathe, you are taking in oxygen with each inhale and releasing carbon dioxide with each exhale. This exchange is important for Respiration. Food molecules absorbed after digestion are taken in, broken down, and the energy freed in the process is used to power the organism's movements and physiological functioning. Respiration is the biochemical process in which the cells of an organism obtain energy by combining oxygen and glucose, resulting in the release of carbon dioxide, water, and ATP (the currency of energy in cells).
