  Kussmaul breathing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kussmaul breathing is the rapid, deep, and labored breathing (see hyperventilation) of people who have acidosis.
Kussmaul breathing is named for Adolph Kussmaul, the 19th century German doctor who first noted it.
The cause of Kussmaul breathing is respiratory compensation for a metabolic acidosis, most commonly occurring in diabetics in diabetic ketoacidosis.

Kussmaul breathing - Rapid deep breathing seen in Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).
Kussmaul sign- Paradoxical rise in the Jugular venous pressure (JVP) on inhalation in Constrictive pericarditis or Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Kussmaul was born at Graben near Karlsruhe and studied at Heidelberg.

Apnuestic Breathing :Pauses in the respiratory cycle at full inspiration, caused by damage of the respiratory control centres in the more caudal pons.
Biot's respiration or breathing: Completely irregular breathing pattern, with continually variable rate and depth of breathing; results from lesions in the respiratory centres in the brainstem, extending from the dorsomedial medulla caudally to the obex.
Hysterical Breathing : Is due to Hyteria which appears almost exclusively in women, in which the emotional and reflex excitability is exaggerated, and the will power correspondingly diminished, so that the patient loses control over the emotions, becomes the victim of imaginary sensations, and often falls into paroxism or fits.

Kussmaul breathing is caused by stimulation of the respiratory centre by acidosis, which may be due to:
Kussmaul breathing is therefore a respiratory compensation for a metabolic acidosis, aimed at reducing the pCO2 because of a forced increased respiratory rate (blowing off the carbon dioxide).
Kussmaul breathing is named after the 19th century German physician Adolph Kussmaul.

 Nuremberg Trials Project -- Medical Trial Transcript
However the breathing at this point was not especially deep as in Kussmaul's breathing nor were any Cheyne-Stokes breathing or Biot's breathing to be observed.
This foam might occur early, that is, at rectal temperatures of 32 [degrees] C to 35 [degrees] C. No special significance was to be attributed to this regarding the outcome of the experiment, which is the opposite of the described relaxation of rigor.
The rate of breathing increased at the beginning of the experiment, but after about 20 minutes it decreased to something like 24 per minute with slight variations.

 Hyperventilation - Enpsychlopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Lastly, in the case of metabolic acidosis, the body uses hyperventilation to counter the increased acidity of the blood; this is known as Kussmaul breathing.
In normal breathing, both the depth and frequency of breaths is varied by the neural system in order to supply appropriate levels of oxygen to the body's tissues.
Deeper or quicker breaths exchange more of the alveolar gas with air and have the net effect of drawing more carbon dioxide out of the body, since the carbon dioxide concentration in normal air is very low.

 Hyperventilation
In medicine, hyperventilation (or hyperpnea) is the state of breathing faster or deeper (hyper) than necessary, and thereby reducing the carbon dioxide concentration of the blood below normal.
The related symptom tachypnea (or "tachypnoea") (Greek: "rapid breathing") is characterized by rapid breathing and is not identical with hyperventilation - tachypnea may be necessary for a sufficient gas-exchange of the body, for example after exercise, in which case it is not hyperventilation.
Rapid or deep breathing is sometimes seen in very serious conditions such as infection, bleeding,...
