Why does vomiting happen during pneumonia?
It's not really a homework or anything. I was researching about the pathophysiology of pneumonia and stumbled on reports of vomiting occurring while having pneumonia. I've tried to search of any internet articles about it, but it seems too time-staking for me at the moment since the keywords I've used don't seem to get the results the first time.
Can anyone tell me if vomiting is due to the gag reflex of coughing while eating and having pneumonia or is there some other reason why this occurs?
