Brain stem ischemia is a condition that occurs when the brain stem is deprived of sufficient blood flow and therefore cannot perform metabolism. This also causes hypoxia and the death of brain tissue, known as an ischemic stroke. Focal brain ischemia is typically caused by a blood clot or cholesterol buildup in an artery of the brain, and global brain ischemia can be caused by cardiac arrest, sickle cell anemia, or congenital heart defects. Transient brainstem ischemia is characterized by brief, reversible periods of ischemia, usually lasting under an hour. Symptoms of brain stem ischemia can be unconsciousness, vision problems, lack of motor skills, and dizziness. Treatment for brain stem ischemia include regulating the blood pressure into the brain as well as taking preventative measures against seizures, as they are likely to occur following a brain ischemia. Because the brain stem is a critical component in basic functions, blood loss to this area is very detrimental, and while transient episodes are reversible, they could lead to instances of ischemia that lead to permanent brain damage and even death.
