Medical Info :Do you know??

New experience and new knowledge today. Thanks doctor for the info. I just realize that our body not only need oxygen, but really appreciate the existence of carbon dioxide CO2. My mom was fainted today. As usual, it's complicated to say but Alhamdulillah nothing serious. We went back home safely after about 4 hours waiting and hearing the lecture from the doctor. One of the topic was, leck of CO2 in the body cause blackout [just like electric circuit].

Then, as usual again..I'm start google'ing and I found this...[ow, my very little sister had just get her satellite few weeks ago]

"Reduces the CO2 concentration level in the bloodstream, below the normal 40 mm of Hg, thereby resulting in an increased level of pH value. Since CO2 increases the acidity in the blood, a low CO2 level leads to increased alkalinity in the blood. This, in turn, leads to the constriction of blood vessels that supply blood to the brain. Moreover, transport of essential electrolytes for the functioning of the nervous system is also reduced. Low level of CO2 in the bloodstream, can cause cerebral vasoconstriction, thereby resulting in cerebral hypoxia. The symptoms and signs of this are:
• Visual disturbances.
• Anxiety.
• Transient dizziness in the person.
• Muscle cramps.
• Blackouts."
