silent aspiration

aspiration of food and liquids without coughing, can occur as a result of neurological damage. (If food or liquid enters the respiratory system of a normal, healthy individual, it induces coughing.) Silent aspiration can cause pneumonia, with a temperature spike being the first indication that food or liquids are entering the lungs.
