The Curious Case of the Hiccups

Please complete our feedback form

This video studies the biological mechanisms, causes, and recommended cures for hiccups, medically referred to as "singultus". Jayson the Life Sci Guy (parody of Bill Nye the Science Guy) uses an informative, yet humorous approach to teach about the ins and outs of hiccups through his larger-than-life portrayal of medical concepts with his friends.
