    How to use "Asphyxiation" in context?

    Asphyxiation is the death of a person due to the obstruction of oxygen to the brain. It can occur from a number of causes, including but not limited to: an obstruction of the airways (especially following an attack of asphyxiation from smoke or carbon monoxide); a blockage of the windpipe (causing suffocation); or an infection of the lungs (pneumonia). Fortunately, most asphyxiations are reversible, and people can often be saved if their breathing is immediately recognized and they receive professional medical help.
