Neurological manifestations of the hyperventilation syndrome.


Seventy-eight patients with the hyperventilation syndrome are described, none of whom had been diagnosed prior to referral for neurological assessment. There is a constellation of symptoms associated with this condition, and attacks need to be reproduced by hyperventilation in order for the diagnosis to be established. Loss of consciousness and paraesthesiae were more frequent than in previously published series.
