About Aspiration Pneumonitis; Food/Vomitus

Aspiration pneumonitis due to food/vomitus is a condition that occurs when food/vomitus (vomit) is inhaled into the lungs and causes inflammation. Aspiration occurs when a material is inhaled into the lungs. Aspiration pneumonitis, also called Mendelson's syndrome, causes inflammation of and damage to the lung tissues because of the food/vomitus mixed with stomach acids that enter the lungs. Aspiration pneumonia often occurs when someone vomits while unconscious, then breathes the contents of the stomach into the lungs. Symptoms of aspiration pneumonitis from inhaling food/vomitus can include difficulty breathing and a wheezing sound in the chest, along with chest pain and coughing up phlegm.
