Consists of a soft toy in the shape of the Bordetella pertussis bacterium that causes "whooping cough." Scaled at one million times actual size
"Coughs are very common and can be triggered by a variety of factors including smoking, allergies, and even heartburn (as well as more serious conditions such as asthma, tuberculosis, congestive heart failure, and lung cancer). But many coughs, particularly in young children, are caused by microbes. While common cold and flu viruses can cause ordinary coughs (which can often be relieved with humidifiers and cough syrups), B. pertussis bacteria causes 'whooping cough,' a serious cough that can go on for over 6 weeks. Coughing spells, up to 40 a day, can last over a minute and often end with a 'whoop' of gasped air. While in older children and adults the risks are generally slight, small children can suffer oxygen deprivation and turn blue." -- Tag
