In brief: Lower carbon dioxide

When you hyperventilate, your carbon dioxide level will decrease.
That can cause you to get dizzy or lightheaded. Also, it can cause brief decreases in the calcium level of the blood, which can cause tingling in some areas.

In brief: Increases body's pH

Hyperventilation increases your body's pH which makes the blood more alkaline.
As a result, the cells get less oxygen. Hope it helps.
