    •  I can cough until I cough blood. (0+ / 0-)

      That's a different mechanism than having my brachia begin to profuse blood due to massive inflammation due to a foreign substance. Unless there was an underlying condition I'm guessing it was the former reason and not the latter.

      One is "organ failure" the other is caused by coughing brought on my extreme irritation.  That might seem trivial, but it is a big difference if I were assessing the patient.
