Respiratory failure is a problem in which your blood does not have enough oxygen or has way too much co2. Another part of breathing is getting rid of the carbon dioxide from the blood and breathing it out. Having excessive co2 in your blood can hurt your body organs. Problems that influence your breathing can cause respiratory failure. The symptoms of respiratory failure depend on the cause and the degrees of oxygen and carbon dioxide in your blood. A low oxygen degree in the blood can cause shortness of breath and air appetite. Your skin, lips, and fingernails may have a bluish shade. A high carbon dioxide level can cause fast breathing and confusion. Some people who have respiratory failure might become very drowsy or pass out. If your brain and heart are not getting sufficient oxygen, you may have these symptoms.
