Beschreibung

This book describes Hyperventilation Syndromes, Diagnosis and Treatment and Related Diseases

“Hyperventilation occurs more in women because they will keep breathing, again, again and again!”

“Breathing into a paper bag is no longer advised.”

Hyperventilation syndrome (HVS) indicates a relatively frequent emergency department disorder that can happen with anxiety or panic.
A breathing rate that exceeds 16 breaths per minute is typical of either hyperventilation or tachypnea (rapid shallow breathing).
While tachypnea and hyperventilation are occasionally considered to be the same, hyperventilation is normally related to anxiety, stress or panic.
Over breathing is another name for hyperventilation, and it may leave the patient feeling breathless.
The patient may hyperventilate from an emotional cause such as during a panic attack.
Rapid breathing may be a medical emergency and the patient need to get treated, unless the patient have had this before and the doctor has told the patient that the patient can treat it on the own.
Excessive breathing produces low levels of carbon dioxide (hypo-capnia) in the blood.
Causes
The cause for HVS is not known, but some persons who are affected seem to have an abnormal respiratory response to stress, sodium, lactate, and other chemical and emotional triggers which can cause excess minute ventilation and hypocarbia.
This creates many of the symptoms of hyperventilation.
Emotional causes are:
1. Anxiety and nervousness
2. Panic attack
3. Stress
4. Circumstances where there is a psychological benefit in having a sudden, dramatic illness (e.g., somatization disorder)
Medical causes are:
1. Bleeding
2. Cardiac disease, such as congestive heart failure or heart attack
3. Drugs (such as an aspirin overdose)
4. Infection such as pneumonia or sepsis
5. Ketoacidosis and similar medical conditions
6. Lung disease such as asthma, COPD, or pulmonary embolism
7. Pregnancy
8. Severe pain
9. Stimulant medicines usage
Symptoms
Fast breathing can be a medical emergency that needs to get treated unless the patient has had this before and the doctor has told the patient that the patient can treat it himself.
Often, panic and hyperventilation become linked to a vicious cycle.
Panic attack results in rapid breathing and breathing quickly can make the patient feel panicked.
There are many of the other symptoms:
1. Belching
2. Bloating
3. Chest pain
4. Confusion
5. Dizziness
6. Dry mouth
7. Light-headedness
8. Muscle spasms in the hands and feet
9. Numbness and tingling in the arms or around the mouth
10. Palpitations
11. Shortness of breath
12. Sleep disturbances
13. Weakness
When the patient is over-breathing, the patient might not be aware the patient is breathing fast and deep.
But the patient will likely be aware of the other symptoms, such as:
1. Feeling lightheaded, dizzy, weak, or not able to think straight
2. Feeling as if the patient can't catch the breath
3. Chest pain or fast and pounding heartbeat
4. Belching or bloating
5. Dry mouth
6. Muscle spasms in the hands and feet
7. Numbness and tingling in the arms or around the mouth
8. Problems sleeping
Diagnosis
Blood tests for the oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in the blood
Chest CT scan is normal
ECG is performed to detect cardiac ischemia
Treatment
The patient should learn deep breathing and relaxation techniques to help cope with an anxiety or panic attack.
Regular exercise daily will help
Treatment for anxiety such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and medicine by a doctor can help the patient cope with anxiety
Medical treatment includes benzodiazepines or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or a beta-blocker.

Introduction

I have been writing medical articles for my blog: http://kennethkee.blogspot.com (A Simple Guide to Medical Disorder) for the benefit of my patients since 2007.

My purpose in writing these simple guides was for the health education of my patients.

Health Education was also my dissertation for my Ph.D (Healthcare Administration).

I then wrote an autobiography account of my journey as a medical student to family doctor on my other blog: http://afamilydoctorstale.blogspot.com.

This autobiography account A Family Doctor’s Tale was combined with my early A Simple Guide to Medical Disorders into a new Wordpress Blog A Family Doctor’s Tale on http://kenkee481.wordpress.com.

From which many free articles from the blog was taken and put together into 800 eBooks.

Some people have complained that the simple guides are too simple.

For their information they are made simple in order to educate the patients.

The later books go into more details of medical disorders.

The first chapter is always from my earlier blogs which unfortunately tends to have typos and spelling mistakes.

Since 2013, I have tried to improve my spelling and writing.

As I tried to bring the patient the latest information about a disorder or illness by reading the latest journals both online and offline, I find that I am learning more and improving on my own medical knowledge in diagnosis and treatment for my patients.

Just by writing all these simple guides I find that I have learned a lot from your reviews (good or bad), criticism and advice.

I am sorry for the repetitions in these simple guides as the second chapters onwards have new information as compared to my first chapter taken from my blog.

I also find repetition definitely help me and maybe some readers to remember the facts in the books more easily.

I apologize if these repetitions are irritating to some readers.

Hyperventilation Syndrome

Hyperventilation occurs more in women because they will keep breathing, again, again and again!

Breathing into a paper bag is no longer advised.

What is Hyperventilation Syndrome?

Hyperventilation syndrome (HVS) indicates a relatively frequent emergency department disorder that can happen with anxiety or panic.

A breathing rate that exceeds 16 breaths per minute is typical of either hyperventilation or tachypnea (rapid shallow breathing).

While tachypnea and hyperventilation are occasionally considered to be the same, hyperventilation is normally related to anxiety, stress or panic.

Over breathing is another name for hyperventilation, and it may leave the patient feeling breathless.

The patient may hyperventilate from an emotional cause such as during a panic attack.

Rapid breathing may be a medical emergency and the patient need to get treated, unless the patient have had this before and the doctor has told the patient that the patient can treat it on the own.

If the patient often over-breathes, the patient may have a medical disorder called hyperventilation syndrome.

A normal person breathes in oxygen and breathes out carbon dioxide.
