Hypoxic Brain Injury Lawyers
Hypoxic brain injury occurs when the brain is deprived of adequate oxygen for an extended period of time. This can be caused by events such as drowning or near-drowning, suffocation, choking, trauma, drug overdose, smoke inhalation, very low blood pressure, and carbon monoxide poisoning. Complications of general anesthesia, surgery, and child birth can also result in hypoxic brain injury.

Brain cells are extremely sensitive to oxygen deprivation. Brain cells will start to die within minutes if they are deprived of oxygen. Words such as hypoxia, anoxia, and asphyxia may also be used to describe circumstances where inadequate oxygen reaches the brain.
