The role of hyperventilation - hypocapnia in the O papel da hiperventilação - a hipocapnia no Andras Sikter,1 Ede Frecska,2 Ivan Mario Braun,3 A b s t r a c tObjective: The authors present a profile of panic disorder based on and generalized from the effects of acute and chronichyperventilation that are characteristic of the respiratory panic disorder subtype. The review presented attempts to integrate threepremises: hyperventilation is a physiological response to hypercapnia; hyperventilation can induce panic attacks; chronichyperventilation is a protective mechanism against panic attacks. Method: A selective review of the literature was made using theMedline database. Reports of the interrelationships among panic disorder, hyperventilation, acidosis, and alkalosis, as well ascatecholamine release and sensitivity, were selected. The findings were structured into an integrated model. Discussion: Thepanic attacks experienced by individuals with panic disorder develop on the basis of metabolic acidosis, which is a compensatoryresponse to chronic hyperventilation. The attacks are triggered by a sudden increase in (pCO ) when the latent (metabolic) acidosis manifests as hypercapnic acidosis. The acidotic condition induces catecholamine release. Sympathicotonia cannot ariseduring the hypercapnic phase, since low pH decreases catecholamine sensitivity. Catecholamines can provoke panic whenhyperventilation causes the hypercapnia to switch to hypocapnic alkalosis (overcompensation) and catecholamine sensitivitybegins to increase. Conclusion: Therapeutic approaches should address long-term regulation of the respiratory pattern andelimination of metabolic acidosis.
Descriptors: Acidosis; Catecholamines; Hyperventilation; Hypocapnia; Panic disorder R e s u m oObjetivo: Os autores apresentam um modelo de transtorno do pânico que se baseia nos efeitos da hiperventilação aguda ecrônica, característicos do subtipo respiratório de transtorno do pânico. O modelo é generalizado a partir desses efeitos. Eleintegra três características da hiperventilação: a hiperventilação é uma resposta fisiológica à hipercapnia; a hiperventilação podeinduzir ataques de pânico; a hiperventilação crônica representa um mecanismo protetor contra os ataques de pânico. Método:Revisão seletiva da literatura a partir da base de dados Medline. Foram selecionados relatos referentes à inter-relação entretranstorno do pânico, hiperventilação, acidose, alcalose, liberação de catecolaminas e sensibilidade a catecolaminas, sendo osachados estruturados de modo a formar um modelo integrado. Discussão: Os ataques de pânico do transtorno do pânicodesenvolvem-se com base numa acidose metabólica, que é uma resposta compensatória à hiperventilação crônica. Os ataquessão desencadeados por um súbito aumento da pressão parcial de dióxido de carbono (pCO ), quando a acidose (metabólica) latente se manifesta pela acidose hipercápnica. A condição acidótica induz liberação de catecolaminas. A simpaticotonia nãopode manifestar-se durante a fase de hipercapnia, pois o baixo pH diminui a sensibilidade às catecolaminas. As catecolaminaspodem provocar pânico quando a hipercapnia comuta para uma alcalose hipocápnica devido à supercompensação pelahiperventilação, situação na qual a sensibilidade às catecolaminas liberadas começa a aumentar. Conclusão: As abordagensterapêuticas deveriam voltar-se para a regulação em longo prazo do padrão respiratório e a eliminação da acidose metabólica.

Therefore, understanding the timing and extracellular pH to 7.4-7.7. Since CO readily passes through the time constant (how quickly a change develops) of cell membranes, intracellular pCO decreases to the same physiological variables is crucial for resolving the apparent degree. Therefore, altering respiration can produce marked contradictions and establishing a coherent model.
changes in intracellular pH, the consequences of which are The role of hypocapnia in the pathomechanism of PD has outlined below.7 Acute hypocapnia has a progressive effect on been largely overlooked in the literature.2 During the late membrane permeability, metabolism, oxygen consumption, and 1930s, hyperventilation played a central role in the diagnostic cardiac function,8 as well as exciting the nervous system formulation of hyperventilation syndrome.3-4 Shortly after the through the hypopolarization of neurons.9-10 In contrast, conceptualization of PD in the DSM III (1980), it became hypercapnia results in decreased cell membrane permeability,11 evident that there had been an overlap between symptoms of metabolic depression,12 reduced muscle contractility13, and hyperventilation syndrome and PD.5 The article written by Klein hyperpolarization of neurons. In short, acute hypocapnia elicits in 1993 represented an important step toward settling the effects similar to those seen when the sympathetic nervous long-standing debate on the role of hyperventilation.6 Klein system is stimulated, whereas acute hypercapnia evokes denied the importance of acute or chronic hyperventilation in parasympathetic effects. The latter occurs despite the fact that the generation of panic attacks. Although he described a h y p e r c a p n i a c a u s e s i n c r e a s e s i n t h e l e v e l s o f s e r u m positive correlation between chronic hyperventilation and panic adrenaline and noradrenaline.14 There are conflicting data attacks, he used this observation in order to put forth the idea i n t h e l i t e r a t u r e r e g a r d i n g s e r u m a d r e n a l i n e a n d that chronic hyperventilation is protective against panic.

Furthermore, 17 of the articles included the physiological level, although this process also occurs only deal with the physiology and pathology of catecholamine homeostasis in relation to panic. These articles were identified Various authors have downplayed the role of hyperventilation by adding the search terms “acid-base disorder”, “acidosis”, in PD and have recommended that the term ‘hyperventilation “alkalosis”, “hypocapnia”, “hypercapnia”, “catecholamine”, syndrome’ no longer be used.21-24 However, in another review “noradrenaline”, “adrenaline”, and “sympathetic nervous article, Gardner argues for the preservation of the term.25 Other system”. In this step of the selection process, we focused on authors have stated that chronic hyperventilation is a common articles investigating the relationship between acidosis/alkalosis cause of both hyperventilation syndrome and PD.5,25-26 Recently, a n d c a t e c h o l a m i n e p r o d u c t i o n , a s w e l l a s o n t h o s e Nardi addressed the role of hyperventilation in PD and tried to clarify it, stating that it is considered to be “.a cause, a correlate, of PD, and that similar irregularity can be found in or a consequence of panic attacks.” According to Nardi, acute generalized anxiety disorder.40 The similarity can explain hyperventilation might play a role in the pathomechanism of the the high comorbidity of these two conditions.26 In individuals with generalized anxiety disorder, the irregularity of breathing In a study using transcutaneous monitoring, no relationship is less pronounced than in those with PD.41 Various studies was found between PD and hyperventilation.28 This method is have shown that, in individuals with PD, there is a strong outdated due to its high inertia (slow decay) in monitoring changes correlation between the degree of respiratory irregularity in arterial pCO .2 It is widely accepted that the respiratory PD and the frequency of panic attacks, as well as between subtype, which accounts for approximately 50% of all PD cases, such irregularity and CO vulnerability.1,41-42 Irregular i s c l o s e l y r e l a t e d t o h y p e r v e n t i l a t i o n a n d r e p r e s e n t s a respiration occasionally causes elevated pCO , which can hyperventilation syndrome comorbidity.2,5,25-26 There are three views in the literature regarding the role that The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical axis model of hyperventilation plays in the pathomechanism of PD. In the first, hypercapnia induced panic is generally accepted in the panic is triggered by elevated CO levels, and hyperventilation literature,17,43 although it was recently questioned by follows as a physiological response.1,29 In this model, the Gorman,44 who discovered inconsistencies and pointed out hyperventilation is a consequence, an epiphenomenon observed that, during CO challenge, actual pCO values correlate during naturally-occurring and drug-induced panic attacks. In negatively with signs and symptoms of panic. This indicates the view of other authors30-31 – a view shared by followers of the that panic develops not during hypercapnia but during the cognitive-behavioral theory of PD1 – hyperventilation-induced subsequent hypocapnic phase. The way Gorman puts it: hypocapnia plays a central role. The opinion of psychotherapists “.in panic disorder patients, we have found that elevated can be summarized as follows: individuals with PD can cortisol, fear and hypocapnia are intercorrelated in the few misinterpret the bodily sensations caused by hyperventilation as minutes before actually experiencing an acute attack.” being indicative of life-threatening danger.32 As previously mentioned, higher pCO leads to increased However, the most widely accepted view is that detailed by noradrenaline release.18 However, in human plasma, Klein6: hyperventilation is a protective mechanism against panic noradrenaline has a half-life of only a few minutes.45-46 In reactions. In his thorough study, Klein demonstrated that patients the rebound phase of hypocapnia, cells present increased with PD are hypersensitive to increases in pCO , and that panic s e n s i t i v i t y t o r e s i d u a l c a t e c h o l a m i n e s .7 S t r o n g attacks are triggered by a relative increase in the level of CO .

In an individual with chronic hyperventilation, life events animals50 and concluded that panic attacks represent a (i.e., relaxation, sleep, premenstrual phase, etc.) can cause pCO pathological manifestation of ‘freezing behavior’ (low-arousal to rise to the normal baseline or above.6 The latent metabolic condition), rather than the high-arousal condition of the acidosis then appears, and the elevated concentration of H+ ‘fight-or-flight’ response.51 ‘Freezing behavior ’ initially increases CO sensitivity of the respirator y center. It can be manifests as immobility, bradycardia, and hypoventilation assumed that the chronic hyperventilation itself is responsible for but can transform into the flight response, which is the increased CO sensitivity observed in individuals with PD.

It is quite probable that the an indicator of chronic hyperventilation, has been found to be role the brainstem plays in the pathomechanism of PD is predictive of lactate-induced panic attacks.34 Decreased plasma more important than previously suggested.
bicarbonate is also a marker of chronic hyperventilation and We can build a profile of PD that integrates the three sensitizes to the onset of panic attacks.35 However, chronic hyperventilation theories. Individuals with the respiratory hypercapnia accompanied by metabolic alkalosis has been shown PD subtype present chronic hyperventilation. The chronic to correlate negatively with the development of panic attacks.6 hyperventilation results in a compensatory decrease in V a r i o u s r e s e a r c h e r s h a v e b e e n s u c c e s s f u l i n u s i n g intracellular and extracellular pH due to renal secretion of hyperventilation to provoke panic attacks.27,36-39 Nardi addressed bicarbonate and due to the tissue buffer mechanisms. A the role of hypocapnia and hypercapnia in PD with equal focus balanced steady-state is established between the hypocapnic and equal importance in the pathogenesis.27,38-39 However, the alkalosis and the metabolic acidosis.

Therefore, therapeutic approaches should address long- sympathicotonia, since the higher catecholamine level resulting term regulation of respiratory patterns60 and elimination of from the previous hypercapnia overlaps with the increased catecholamine sensitivity caused by the hypocapnic alkalosis.
The adrenergic/noradrenergic tonus results in fear mediatedby the limbic system, and the expectation of threat can createa vicious circle. Long after the chemical component phase ofa panic attack is over, the cortical excitation persists, leavingthe individual with a lingering, subjective feeling of anxiety.
