Common Panic Response Can Desensitize Body to Temperature Changes

Panic-induced hyperventilation can reduce our ability to respond to environmental threats. Change in blood gas caused by intense breathing can desensitize the body to temperature changes. Less blood flow to the brain was observed during hyper ventilation with hypocapnia. Hypocapnia may be a mechanism by which hyperventilated reduces sensitivity to stress, while paradoxically dampening thermoregulatory behavior.
