Today I seen my Respority Physiotherapy at lung clinic .. Hooks and Crooks of it he said I suffer from low Blood Co2
Me being Nieve thought that was good news considering I still smoke
But NO a low Co2 is as bad as a High Co2 anyway he started talking about Over-breathing of Un-known Cause that causes shortness of breath.
Also we touched on Bicarbonate I thought he was offering me a fizzy drink BUT no he was talking about Co2 and Metabolism Pursed Lip Breathing or should we say venting like a old boiler
Anyway here is video that explains Over-breathing Low Co2 and Hyperventilation and how you think the more or faster you breath the more Oxygen your getting WHEN in realty the less your getting
As with lung disease nothing is what it's seems BUT at least I can hold my breath for 40s and believe it or not that is a plus plus when it comes to lung disease copd or emphysema
Currently av been advised to breath out longer than time it takes to breath in
