Breathing Too Fast (Tachypnea) complications
Breathing Too Fast (Tachypnea)

Complications could include:

  • Fainting happens when you lose consciousness for a short amount of time because your brain isn't getting enough oxygen. The medical term for fainting is syncope
  • Respiratory alkalosis is a condition that changes the balance of carbon dioxide and oxygen in the blood. It occurs when carbon dioxide levels drop too low. Hyperventilation is typically the underlying cause.
  • Spasticity occurs when muscles contract, become stiff, or spasm involuntarily. Spasticity can make it difficult to walk, move, or talk. It can be uncomfortable and painful at times.
