A hypoxic brain injury occurs when an injury deprives the brain of enough oxygen and causes it to stop working properly. These injuries can include suffocation from toxic gases and smoke, choking, and blood circulation conditions like stroke and cardiac arrest. A few symptoms that can be associated with a hypoxic brain injury are seizures, unconsciousness, and cognitive problems. Treatment of a hypoxic brain injury must happen as quickly as possible, for cells deprived of enough oxygen can die and lead to permanent brain damage. A ventilator may be required to restore breathing, and if the hypoxia is caused by conditions such as a seizure or heart attack, those must be addressed as well. A hypoxic brain injury can be fully repaired if oxygen levels are restored in time, but the longer the symptoms last there is a higher chance of permanent brain damage.
