Crying, this is a way to vent your emotions. But crying and crying began to appear in the limbs numbness, resulting in the lack of gas, and accompanied by a significant sense of suffocation, which is actually crying to the occurrence of respiratory alkalosis. Recently, in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, China, a female college student was sent to the hospital for rescue because she was crying for 3 hours in the movie.
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. Hand and foot snoring can occur, and even seizures of the whole body can be life-threatening if not handled in time.
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 occurs, it not only affects the mood, but also harms the body. Take excessive anger as an example. After anger, the body will change. The first thing that hurts is the liver. If you are angry, you will have liver disease. Even cirrhosis; when angry, the heart’s contractility is enhanced, the heart beats faster, a large amount of blood rushes to the heart, and the heart needs to double the work; at the same time, the brain also commands the body to secrete a corticosteroid, if the hormone is in the body If you accumulate too much, it will hinder the operation of immune cells and reduce the body’s resistance. When people are emotional, their breathing will become short, the alveoli will continue to expand, there will be no time to contract, and many people will have lungs; stomach Reduced blood flow, insufficient blood supply, gastrointestinal motility is difficult, causing gastrointestinal “negative absenteeism”; when angry, the endocrine system will be disordered, causing too much hormone secretion by the thyroid. Over time, it may also cause hyperthyroidism.
Therefore, when encountering scenes with large emotional fluctuations, it is necessary to pay attention to easing the atmosphere and avoiding the phenomenon that someone can’t keep up with breathing.
