ⓘ Hypoventilation

Hypoventilation occurs when ventilation is inadequate to perform needed gas exchange. By definition it causes an increased concentration of carbon dioxide and respiratory acidosis. Hypoventilation is not synonymous with respiratory arrest, in which breathing ceases entirely and death occurs within minutes due to hypoxia and leads rapidly into complete anoxia, although both are medical emergencies. Hypoventilation can be considered a precursor to hypoxia and its lethality is attributed to hypoxia with carbon dioxide toxicity.
