ABSTRACT
1. Five of 11 chronic hyperventilators were symptomatically relieved by chlordiazepoxide but not by placebo. 2. The usual T wave lowering following hyperventilation, and less common ST segment depression, appeared to be inhibited by medication. 3. This resulted in a normal electrocardiogram therefore less confusion with �false positive� Master two-step exercise tests and so-called �nonspecific borderline� patterns. 4. Changes in serum potassium levels or heart rate (sympathetic effect) do not appear to explain these findings. 5. The possibilities of a direct myocardial or more likely central nervous system effect cannot be excluded.
