Hyperventilation Medical Treatment
Once the doctor is sure that the patient's diagnosis is hyperventilation syndrome and not something more serious, the doctor will arrange follow-up care with a psychiatrist or a primary care doctor. These doctors will teach the patient about the syndrome and what techniques may help control the attacks. Sometimes, usually after talking with a regular doctor, certain medications may be prescribed. If the patient's condition worsens after visiting the emergency department, he or she should return for a recheck.
