How does hyperpnea affect the amount of carbon dioxide and oxygen in the blood?

Low CO2, alkalemia. Deep or rapid breathing removes more gaseous co2 leading to less co2 in the blood and associated alkalemia - it has a minimal effect on oxygenation except in disease states.

How can hyperpnea affects partial pressure of carbon dioxide and oxygen levels in the blood?

Hyperpnea/tachypnea. The rapid breathing will blow out co2 and lower its level in the blood. This may or may not affect the o2 level depending on the cause of the tachypnea. Read more...

When you are jogging, do your muscles use more oxygen and thus release more carbon dioxide into the blood?

Yes. Jogging definitely increases oxygen consumption by the muscles and production of multiple products from this including carbon dioxide. One of the ways we compensate for this is by breathing harder as we exercise. Read more...

What changes can you expect in the levels of blood oxygen and carbon dioxide in a patient who breathes rapidly and deeply for a prolonged time?

Hyperventilation. Many athletes may "oxygen-load" their blood just prior to a race by doing this. Breathing rapidly will draw in more oxygen and "load up" the red blood cells' hemoglobin, and at the same time empty out more carbon dioxide than usually would be. You have to be careful doing this, because it will throw off your body's acid/base balance and make you dizzy or pass out! Read more...

If red blood cells carry oxygen, do they also carry carbon dioxide?

To some degree. • While O2 is transported via the Hgb of the RBC, carbon dioxide is more soluble in blood than oxygen. About 5 % of carbon dioxide is transported unchanged, simply dissolved in the plasma. Carbon dioxide additionally does combines reversibly with haemoglobin to form carbamino haemoglobin. About 10 % of carbon dioxide is transported bound to haemoglobin and plasma proteins. Read more...
