Hyperventilation - How COPD Patients Can Deal With It?

A discomfort in chest accompanied by shortness of breath and a tingling sensation in fingers or toes might be a sign of hyperventilation, more commonly known as panic attacks. This is the condition wherein you need more amount of oxygen than normal.

And, you need to be aware of the symptom, especially if you are suffering from COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). With COPD, experiencing symptoms of hyperventilation may turn adverse, and there are enough reasons to know the ways to manage it, which is indeed possible.

Symptoms
Hyperventilating or over-breathing can be accompanied by or can cause various symptoms in people. Apart from the common symptoms described above, some patients may also experience dizziness, palpitations, sweating profusely, wheeze, feelings of suffocation or choking, tinnitus, weakness, etc. Some may also feel highly anxious or tensed. Though very uncommon, still, one may suffer from loss of consciousness as a result of hyperventilating.

Dealing with hyperventilation
Depending on the severity and type of hyperventilation, the available treatment option may vary from person to person. From various home remedies to certain prescribed drugs, treatments are available easily. However, it’s through practicing a few techniques on noticing the symptoms that can help one deal with hyperventilation. Some of those useful methods are, breathing through pursed lips, holding the breath for 10 to 15 seconds, trying to take deep breaths into the belly rather than in the chest and breathing slowly into cupped hands or a paper bag. These techniques will help regulate the breathing.

Preventing hyperventilation

  • As with many conditions, being aware of the preventive measures is crucial to managing the symptoms and the same is true with hyperventilation as well. A few measures to follow by COPD patients to prevent hyperventilation
  • Wearing tight fitting clothes restrict normal breathing. Therefore, wearing clothes that are loose on the upper chest portion can assist in preventing over breathing.
  • Opting for light exercises regularly (approved by the doctors, as having COPD needs extra attention in activities) helps in reducing stress levels and anxiety, which again can play a crucial role in preventing hyperventilating.
  • Though initially, it may be difficult, still, one must try to breathe through his or her nose and close the mouth for preventing over-breathing, as closed mouth makes it extremely difficult to hyperventilate.
  • Further, sleeping well during the night, eating a balanced diet, reducing the intake of caffeinated beverages like tea and coffee, and practicing various techniques for relaxation can be helpful too in preventing hyperventilation.

In case, the episodes of hyperventilation last for more than 30 minutes, even after trying all the techniques mentioned above, one should not delay in seeking necessary medical attention.
Growing episodes of hyperventilation or over-breathing can leave one feeling breathless. Therefore, when people with COPD notice any symptom of hyperventilation, consulting with pulmonology specialist must be of top priority. Neglecting this particular condition for an extended period may end up causing further complications. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am worried because I've got dry cough since 3 weeks. I am coating my tongue with ayurvedic medicine (kanthika) every day and tried gargling with hot water and salt and using pepper in my food and soups but all of these didn't help much. What should I do? I am currently on Rejuvinex Cdr for 2 more weeks so please suggest accordingly. I prefer Ayurvedic treatment anytime!

Your symptoms shows you have low immunity. Make your diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid spicy, oily, junk food. Add amla in your diet either raw, morraba or chywanprash. Do regular pranayam. Anulom vilom is very good for you.

Hi lybrate-user, A dry cough is certainly a painful infection because your throat is stopped producing phlegm and without it, the throat becomes dry and irritating. It is something that can damage the tissues. Thankfully, there is a moderate, possible cure you can use to prevent a dry cough now we’re talking about home remedies that have all the aspects that have been utilized for a long time on to treat this throat issues. 1. Garlic - Garlic is an excellent natural remedy for dry cough, as its antibacterial properties help to relieve many ailments throughout the body, including the respiratory tract. It is a very effective remedy for unclogging the bronchial tubes. First, crush ten garlic cloves and place in a cup of olive oil to soak overnight. The next day, strain the liquid and put in a closed container. Take one tablespoon daily on an empty stomach until finished. You’ll notice results after the first few tablespoons. 2. Eucalyptus and Lemon Vapor - Vapor or mist is great for eliminating phlegm and one of your best allies in unclogging bronchial tubes and eliminating cough. To make a vapor bath, boil a liter of water with eucalyptus and lemon leaves. You can also use the juice of several lemons instead. It’s ready when it starts boiling. Lower the heat and cover your head with a towel and, taking care not to burn yourself, Place your head over the container and rising steam. The towel will make it easier to breathe in the vapors and unclog the bronchi to put an end to that cough. 3. Drink plenty of liquids, but they should be at room temperature; you shouldn’t be drinking anything cold. 4. If the cough hasn’t cleared up after a week, you should consult a doctor. Don’t leave it to the last minute (complications often develop). Seek urgent medical attention if the cough is accompanied by fever, chest pains, or if you have difficulty breathing, 5. Boil a cup of water with three tablespoons of linseed for five minutes. Remove from heat and add some lemon juice and a tablespoon of honey. It should be taken 3 times a day. 6. Turmeric - Add turmeric powder into hot water of a bowl, add black pepper. Boil the thing again for just a couple of minutes. Add a tablespoon of honey. Drink the mixture after brushing daily, this will show a tremendous improvement in your health, especially, persistent cough is brought down, and it is assured to be a healthy cure for a cough. You can also add up cinnamon sticks for flavor and also to create a detox effect in the body. Detox treatment is a great need at this time of a dry cough. To state extensively, accumulation of foreign material is the primary cause of coughs and all. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
