I've done a bit of research on this, post climb....in fact, my doctor is a bit of an authority on the subject. I've got some literature around here. Lemme look for it.
Didn't take diamox, despite the fact that we had it, because it was easy enough for me to turn around. But yeah.... I distinctly remember the gasping for air, the gradual decrease in breathing rate, and the sudden increase. It's not, by the way, hyperventilation.
