Hyperventilation How Fast Can Someone Pass Out If Hyperventilating
Varies: This varies from person to person ranging from fast to not being able to fully pass out. When one hyperventilates, the arterial carbon dioxide level drops, this causes a physiologic decrease in blood flow to the brain, and depending on the person, they may pass out due to decreased blood flow similar to a fainting episode. Don't try this alone or while standing.

In dance class, I really felt like I might pass out. I was Seeing spots, hyperventilating, & had to sit. Is this a serious Zoloft (sertraline) effect? I am worried.
Anxiety: Sounds more like a panic attack. When you start to hyperventilate your body blows off carbon dioxide and that can cause your blood vessels to constrict. That causes the feeling of "passing out", visual spots and weakness. The mechanism is real. Continue your activities. Dance is excellent for exercise and relaxation. Stick with your meds. If symptoms are recurrent let your doctor know.
Hi, I have a question about cerebral hypoxia brain damage. If I were to empty my lungs of all air and hold it for 30 seconds while taking 4 very small, fast hyperventilation like breathes, would that give me brain damage? Can you explain?
Hyperventilate: There are several possibilities. If you mean by hyperventilating you are short of breath with effort of walking fast then it indicates that you may not be getting enough oxygen to your heart. This could be a pulmonary problem or a cardiac problem. You must call your doctor to report this and be examined to find the cause and then properly treated. Do not postpone== this could be serious.See 1 more doctor answer

Pollution: Particulates that deposit in the lungs are uniformly distributed for the most part with local spikes (smoke etc).The larger the volume of air cycled through the lungs the larger the volume of undesired exposure, Beware

Complex: Hyperventilation at night can be related to stress, congestive heart failure, drugs taken at bed time, other. So, wide range of possibilities. Lorazepam is a sedative. If taken for stress, and hyperventilation occurs with dreams then anxiety might be the relationship. A formal sleep study could provide diagnosis by seeing timing, heart pattern, and associated details.
Carbon dioxide: This is the main "driver" for us to breathe. Co2 levels in the brain cause the respiratory center to signal breathing. When you hyperventilate you blow off a lot of co2 and the brain senses no need to breathe. Another driver is oxygen but since your o2 levels be high, the brain senses you have enough o2.See 2 more doctor answers
Hyperventilation: Illnesses in brain regions that control breathing centers, in the respiratory tract that affect breathing, in the cardiovascular system that affect oxygen supply to lungs, in the endocrine system that affect rate of breathing, and lastly in anxiety attacks as result of hyperarousal.
Whatever: Can you still find a paper bag? The idea is to build up co2 levels so the smallest bag that will cover both your nose and mouth and hold a good breath would work. But a big bag would probably work almost as fast if that's all you have. Plastic would not be a good idea.
Acid-base: Hyperventilation drives the carbondioxide from the lungs, so you develop respiratory alkalosis which causes hypokalemia (low potassium).If someone has hyperkalemia and hyperventilation, they probably have some other underlying cause like metabolic acidosis which could be due to several reasons like severe diarrhea, kidney failure, infection. These are only few and one should consult nephrologist.
