Explanation: Aspiration occurs when food or saliva instead of passing down the digestive tract is inhaled into the lungs. This may for example occur in patients who have had a stroke as they have lost muscular control in the affected area.
Aspiration commonly leads to an aspiration pneumonia and can be life threatening.
