I was worried and afraid but the medic just stayed calm ….
I am talking about the recently concluded Youth Boot Camp which I volunteered as staff. After the rigid amazing race, some of the delegates were not able to finished the race due to shortness of breath. The medic team rescued them at the site and performed first-aide measures. I thought the situation was really serious but after few minutes, the concern delegates were back to normal and were running the race again.
So what is Hyperventilation? It is quick “deep” breaths. The biggest cause of hyperventilation is anxiety. Of course there can be other underlying causes; an emotional outburst can cause hyperventilation.
