Hypoxic & Anoxic Brain Injury Symptoms

Oftentimes, brain injuries result from a lack of oxygen. If the brain is without oxygen for more than four minutes, brain cells begin to die. Anoxia occurs when the brain is totally deprived of oxygen, whereas hypoxia occurs when the brain experiences an inadequate amount of oxygen.

Take a look at symptoms of anoxic & hypoxic brain injuries:

  • Lack of coordination
  • Lack of communicative skills
  • Headaches
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Visual disturbances

If the brain has been deprived of oxygen for an extensive period of time, even more severe consequences can follow. Some victims of hypoxic or anoxic brain injury may be sent into a vegetative or minimally responsive state, or even die because of the extent of their injury.

Causes of Hypoxic & Anoxic Brain Injury

In pursuing compensation for brain injury cases it is vital to determine what the cause of the injury was. This can be a difficult and complex process without the help of our experienced Richmond brain injury lawyers.

These types of injuries can be caused by the following:

  • Near-drowning experiences
  • Loss of blood
  • Carbon monoxide exposure
  • Medical malpractice
  • Child birth
