hyperpnea

 [hi″perp-ne´ah]
increase in depth of breathing, which may or may not be accompanied by an increase in the respiratory rate. Maximal hyperpnea occurs during strenuous exercise. See also hyperventilation. adj., adj hyperpne´ic.

hy·per·pne·a

(hī'pĕr-nē'ă, hī-perp'nē-ă), In the diphthong pn, the p is silent only at the beginning of a word. Although hyperpne'a is the correct pronunciation, the alternative pronunciation hyperp'na is widespread in the U.S.
Breathing that is deeper and more rapid than is normal at rest.
[hyper- + G. pnoē, breathing]

hyperpnea

/hy·per·pnea/ (hi″perp-ne´ah) abnormal increase in depth and rate of respiration.hyperpne´ic

hyperpnea

(hī′pərp-nē′ə, hī′pər-nē′ə)
n.
Abnormally deep or rapid breathing.

hy′perp·ne′ic (-ĭk) adj.

hyperpnea

[hī′pərpnē′ə]
Etymology: Gk, hyper + pnoe, blowing
an exaggerated deep, rapid, or labored respiration. It occurs normally with exercise and abnormally with aspirin overdose, pain, fever, hysteria, or any condition in which the supply of oxygen is inadequate, such as cardiac disease and respiratory disease. Also spelled hyperpnoea. Compare dyspnea, hypopnea, orthopnea, tachypnea. See also respiration rate. hyperpneic, hyperpnoic, adj.

(hī'pĕrp-nē'ă)
Breathing that is deeper and more rapid than is normal at rest.
Synonym(s): hyperpnoea.
[hyper- + G. pnoē, breathing]

hyperpnea (hī·perpˑ·nēˈ·),

n rapid and deep respiration that occurs normally after exercise or abnormally when associated with fevers or other disorders.

hy·per·pne·a

(hī'pĕrp-nē'ă)
Breathing that is deeper and more rapid than normal.
Synonym(s): hyperpnoea.
[hyper- + G. pnoē, breathing]

hyperpnea (hī´purpnē´ə),

n an abnormal increase in respiratory volume; an abnormal increase in the rate and depth of breathing.

hyperpnea

abnormal increase in depth and rate of respiration but not to the point of being labored, the critical point for dyspnea.
