Anoxic Brain Injuries
Anoxic Brain Injury is caused by oxygen deprivation to the brain which happens when blood supply to the brain is cut off or greatly diminished and is often seen following traumatic skull injuries or the swelling or bleeding related to a skull injury.
Such brain injuries sometimes unfortunately occur to newborns when there are complications during childbirth that can appear leading to a lack of oxygen to the child’s brain. This can lead to coma. The longer the coma, the worse the prognosis becomes.
The brain must have glucose and oxygen to function at normal levels. When the brain is deprived of oxygen this damages the cortex nerves where cells are created. Irreparable brain damage can come about when the brain is deprived of oxygen for just five minutes. Although there are several treatments for this type of brain injury, it is rarely fully curable.
