The term death rattle is the medical terminology for what happens as a person is dying. The sound comes from the throat because the saliva is accumulating in it due to their inability to swallow. As the air moves through the throat, it disturbs the collected saliva, causing the death rattle. However, the death rattle can also be caused by someone choking or brain injuries that are interfering with the swallowing reflex. There are treatments that can stop or reduce the death rattle, depending on the cause.
