An article published by the CDC in June 2020 states side-effects of wearing a mask, specifically trapping carbon dioxide or CO2. The article states that the masks cause breathing resistance which could result in a reduction in the frequency and depth of breathing, known as hypoventilation, in as little as an hour of wearing a mask.
The article further went onto elaborate of the side-effects of increased CO2 concentrations in the mask wearer that include:
2 Increased pressure inside the skull
3 Nervous system changes
4 increased pain threshold
5 reduction in cognition
6 altered judgement
7 decreased situational awareness
8 difficulty coordinating sensory or cognitive abilities and motor activity
9 decreased visual acuity
10 widespread activation of the sympathetic nervous system that can oppose the direct effects of CO2 on the heart and blood vessels
11 Increased breathing frequency
12 Increased “work of breathing”, which is a result of breathing through a filter medium
13 Cardiovascular effects (e.g., diminished cardiac contractility, vasodilation of peripheral blood vessels)
14 Reduced tolerance to lighter workloads.
