1. Tracheal foreign bodies are usually movable and their movements
can usually be felt by the patient.

recur, or may be continuous, and may be so violent as to induce
vomiting. In recent cases fixed foreign bodies cause little cough;
shifting foreign bodies cause violent coughing.

during paroxysmal cough is almost pathognomonic of a movable tracheal
