Hypoxic brain injury occurs when the brain is deprived of adequate oxygen for an extended period of time. Hypoxic brain injury 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.
