eathing is the most vital function in living beings. When breathing happens in a disordered manner in human beings, that may be the first sign that we are experiencing some dysfunction, whether mechanical, physiological, or psychological (CLIFTONSMITH and ROWLEY, 2011). One respiratory dysfunction that gets scientific attention due to its complexity is the hyperventilation syndrome (HVS). This syndrome is characterized by a set of somatic symptoms induced by inadequate hyperventilation, which may be reproduced completely or partially, by voluntary hyperventilation (RAPIN et al., 2017). According to Lum (1987), hyperventilation may have symptoms similar to asthma. Therefore, it is necessary to distinguish one of the other, as the treatment of hyperventilation is curable and the procedures for achieving successful treatment differ in approach, mechanisms, and orientation. However, the lack of studies that state treatment efficacy is still a problem (RAPIN et al., 2017; VIDOTTO et al., 2019).
