  • Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

    […] need for sleep and stress. [ 4 ] Nightmare disorder [ 5 ] This is synonymous with dream-anxiety attacks.[patient.info] Three subjects in the SW group showed abnormalities: one during both the resting record (RR) and hyperventilation (HV), and two only during HV.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The child may be sweating, breathing very fast ( hyperventilating ), have a fast heart rate, and widened (dilated) pupils.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fear

    Hyperventilation is a traditional seizure-provoking procedure used mainly in idiopathic generalized epilepsy and with a relatively limited role in partial epilepsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] During the EEG session, both patients developed panic symptoms with minimal EEG changes in response to paper bag-hyperventilation (PB-HV), and several minutes later presented[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An inborn response for coping with danger, it works by accelerating the breathing rate (hyperventilation), heart rate, vasoconstriction of the peripheral blood vessels leading[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Dissociative Amnesia

    On the day of the death, she looked upset and began to hyperventilate. The next day, she behaved as if the deceased were still alive, which embarrassed her family.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms of a panic attack include shortness of breath/hyperventilation, racing heart, a choking feeling, sweating, hot/cold flashes, and a fear of dying or losing control[wikihow.com]

This is very old-school (eg. Kingston, 1979 ).[derangedphysiology.com]

  • Motion Sickness
