I have a tendency for stridor, which means making horrible sounds while trying to breathe because either the bronchi, or in my case, the larynx, closes when I cough too much.
It is usually associated with asthma, but again, that's when the bronchi are involved.
Opinions are divided as to whether or not this could cause death. Some ENT say one just passes out and some reflex kicks it to open the airway, others are not so optimistic. For me, the asthma medicine ventolin has worked but others with this same condition say it doesn't work for them.
