Hypoxia occurs when a region of the body is deprived of oxygen. Hypoxia is a very dangerous condition when the brain is affected, for neurons can begin to die off within a matter of minutes, especially in cases of complete oxygen deprivation, or anoxia. Anaerobic metabolism occurs when the cells are not receiving oxygen, which results in a buildup of lactic acid, and could lead to cell death if oxygen is not soon introduced. Chemoreceptors in the carotid body and other enzymes such as prolyl-hydroxylase domain containing protein 2 are able to detect changes in the oxygen level of cells, and use sensory nerves to communicate with the brain stem in order to cause a response of vasodilation, or the widening of blood vessels to increase blood flow and allow for greater perfusion.
