|Title||Alcohol like Syndrome: Influence of Increased CO2 Concentration in the respiration air|
This article discusses the effect of CO2 in losing sensation, Alcohol like syndrome (ALS) and in home sick syndrome (HSS), in poor conditions. The discussion revealed the formation of 2 moles of hydrogen ions as a result of elevated CO2 partial pressure in the rebreathing air as a result of closed systems or covering heads with towels or blanket during sleep. This situation may result in a sever acidosis in the lung and transferring of Na+/K+ ions from the central nervous system to lung to react with excess of CO3--. This situation may end by partial losing sensation as CO2 level increased in the closed system which can be referred to Alcohol Like Syndrome (ALS). Recovery from ALS may occur immediately after rebreathing fresh air contains normal levels of oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide. HSS may also appear in houses have bad ventilation and sun exposure during day.
