Is involuntary intake of extra breath a cause for concern?
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns
You are worried about taking extra breaths. This may be due to congestive heart failure or lungs problems. If there is no shortness of breath with the extra breath then you don't have any issues with either problem. Your body needs to maintain acidic levels and sometimes our lungs take an extra long deep breath called a XXXXXXX that helps reduce carbon dioxide levels in the blood. This is normal and most of us do not even know that it happens. each hour we have about 2 sighs.
If you have any shortness of breath then I recommend that you see your medical provider as this maybe a sign of heart or lung problems.
I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
