.. Holy hell. Poor Shelly. o.o She would’ve looked a mess. ;_;
hyperventilating and totally out to lunch…not good.
hyperventilating is breathing too fast and/or deeply. It causes overly low blood CO2 levels, which cause high blood alkalinity, which causes constriction of blood vessels supplying the brain, which causes all the other symptoms associated with it.
Hypovolemia is when blood plasma levels fall dangerously low: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypovolemic_shock Shelly’s was probably caused by dehydration. The cyanosis in her extremities would have happened because there was not enough plasma to transport oxygenated red blood cells to them.
