Thanks for writing to health care magic.

If you have a foreign body in the wind pipe it is a emergency. You should take medical help at the earliest possible. Please contact the ER at the earliest possible. Take the help of some body around to get help.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
