    Hi. I am interested in learning more about he rebreather mask or other ways of treating the problem. I was reminded of this with Carol Sieverling's excellent article from more than 10 years ago.

    Paul,

    I have chronic metabolic lactic acidosis (respiratory alkalosis) from a genetic condition and have found that these masks really help me:

    They are light enough that I don't feel like I'm suffocating if I'm moving around, and I don't react to the carbon filter the way I do with the 3M masks.
