Hello. At what time hiccoughs are more? Day, night, evening, after food, after any drink? Cough is also there? Is it loud? is it during sleep also?

Sir, It is important that proper ventilation is there where elderly people rest. When the oxygen content in the atmosphere is less, hiccups occur. Other important causes for hiccups are due to medical conditions, which should be handled and solved by the treating doctor.
