Many studies stated that carbon dioxide (CO2) connected with panic symptoms. The high level of CO2 inside the brain can stimulate the respiration system and the unstable balance of acid and base which developing into panic symptom. On this experiment, researcher use breath holding intervention to increase the level of CO2. The high level of CO2 generate the production of endocrine and significant emotional reaction or behavior.
