The doctor will also need to rule out other factors, if any, that may be causing hyperventilation. He may order the following tests –

  • Arterial blood sample / other blood tests
  • Chest X-ray / CT scan
  • Ventilation perfusion scan
  • ECG

If the doctor suspects a serious cause then further tests may be ordered.
