Excited will be “poisoned”?

Crying, this is a way to vent your emotions. But crying and crying began to numb the limbs, the gas is not breathed, and accompanied by a significant suffocation, which is actually crying to the occurrence of respiratory alkalosis.

Big crying will be “poisoned”. What is going on? From the normal situation, the human body needs to maintain acid-base balance, and carbon dioxide combines with water to form carbonic acid. If there is oxygen deficiency and excessive carbon dioxide, it will form respiratory acidosis. On the contrary, if the carbon dioxide in the body is exhaled excessively, the blood will be alkaline and form respiratory alkalosis. In the human body, through the circulation metabolism of blood, the higher concentration of carbon dioxide contained in the venous blood will enter the lungs and be excreted to maintain the body’s acid-base balance. When there is a problem in this link, it will cause “poisoning”.

In respiratory alkalosis, the combination of calcium ions and albumin in the blood increases, and the concentration of free calcium ions decreases. People will have increased nervous and muscle stress, and feel numbness, muscle spasm, and tinnitus in the mouth and limbs. Can cause hand and foot snoring, and even seizures, if not handled in time, may be life-threatening.

In this case, first of all, help the patient to stabilize the mood and take a deep breath. That is, take a deep breath, then hold it, then exhale slowly, and then reciprocate to slow down the breathing rate and avoid excessive carbon dioxide. In this way, respiratory alkalosis can be corrected, and the symptoms of discomfort will gradually ease.

If the condition is serious, you can leave the patient in a quiet corner, give him a bag, a mask, etc. (that is, a closed, open-mouthed object), and buckle it on the nose and mouth to ensure that the patient can repeatedly inhale the carbon dioxide he exhaled. In turn, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the blood is increased, and the symptoms are alleviated. If the patient’s mood is too excited, he can’t calm down at the moment, and if necessary, he can also take medications such as sedatives.

In addition to crying may induce respiratory alkalosis, this may occur in people who have strenuous exercise, emotional agitation, or problems with partial lung function. Once a respiratory alkalosis condition occurs, it not only affects the mood, but also has a great harm to the body. Take excessive anger as an example. After anger, there will be some changes in the body: the first thing that hurts is the liver. If you are angry, you will have liver disease and even cirrhosis. When you are angry, the heart’s contractility will increase, your heart beats, and a lot of When the blood rushes to the heart, the heart needs to double the work. At the same time, the brain also commands the body to secrete a corticosteroid. If this hormone accumulates too much in the body, it will hinder the operation of the immune cells and reduce the body’s resistance. When you are emotional, your breathing will become short, the alveoli will continue to expand, there is no time to contract, many people will have pain in the lungs; blood flow in the stomach is reduced, blood supply is insufficient, gastrointestinal motility is difficult, causing gastrointestinal “negative completion” “After anger, the endocrine system will be disordered, causing too much hormone secretion by the thyroid gland. Over time, it may also cause hyperthyroidism.”

Therefore, when the mood is large, it is necessary to pay attention to easing the atmosphere and avoid the phenomenon that the breathing cannot keep up.
