Hyperpnea is an increase in the depth and rate of breathing in response to a higher demand for oxygen. This physiological response occurs during activities that require enhanced oxygen delivery to body tissues, such as exercise or physical exertion. Unlike hyperventilation, which often involves rapid breathing without increased oxygen demand, hyperpnea is a controlled adaptation to supply the body with the necessary oxygen and remove excess carbon dioxide.
