Immediate and profound decrease of pCO2 and bicarbonate, and an increase in pH (reaching up to 7.75), indicating acute respiratory alkalosis, which normalized quickly after cessation of the breathing techniques. A significant decrease in oxygen saturation(50%). Increased epinephrine levels, increase in...
