The resultant consequence of all these physiological responses is a decrease in minute ventilation and hypoventilation.
Minute ventilation increases, as does respiratory rate.
The technique involves having the patient learn exercises that reduce both the frequency and the depth of breathing, to induce hypocapnia and reduce minute ventilation.
