There’s no pressure in space, so air expands and would painfully tear through the tissue of your lungs as this happened. So in the event that you are sucked out of a spaceship or pushed out of an airlock without a spacesuit, it’s a better idea to exhale as much as possible, rather than take one final gulp of air.
