A non-voluntary spasm of the diaphragm and larynx, with a sudden closure of the glottis to make a sudden sound.


Hiccups are simultaneous contractions of diaphragm and larynx (voice box). This contraction closes the glottis and blocks the passage of air intake. But there is nothing really frightening about hiccups. They occur in bouts and go away themselves without any treatment and do not cause any negative impact on the health.
