According to Medline Plus, Hyperventilation is rapid or deep breathing that can occur with anxiety or panic. It is also called overbreathing,and it may leave you feeling breathless.

Excessive breathing creates low levels of carbon dioxide in your blood. This causes many of the symptoms of hyperventilation.

Feeling very anxious or having a panic attack are the usual reasons that you may hyperventilate. But rapid breathing can be a symptom of a disease, such as:bleeding,heart or lung disorderand infection.
