An arterial blood gas can aid in telling the difference. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: There is a feed back system at work. It is the co2 (carbon dioxide) levels in the blood that drive the breathing center in the brain. When you hyperventilate, you may decrease the co2 in the lungs which reduce some of the level in the blood which will then cause that breathing center to decrease the rate of breathing (hyperventilation). Ultimately hyperventilation can dec co2 only so much. ...Read more
Can you tell me how the prescence of carbon dioxide reduce the affinity of heamoglobin for oxygen?
Exhalation of CO2: Pco2 decreases with hyperventilation because carbon dioxide is a waste product produced by the body as a result of aerobic metabolism. If activity increases, metabolism increases and thus carbon dioxide increase, so we naturally breathe faster. If one hyperventilates more than the increase in metabolism, then level of carbon dioxide with be reduced, because it is being eliminated by exhalation. ...Read more
