After recording several ECGs, I was able to calculate that my heart rate was
slower when I was holding my breath for about a minute than during rest under
normal conditions. Since holding my breath would cause an accumulation of CO2,
which would cause blood pH to lower, I was wondering if this change in blood pH
had any part in the slowing of the heart rate.
