If one of your tissues or organs is not getting any oxygen, the condition is called anoxia. Even though your tissue or organ is receiving a sufficient amount of blood flow, anoxia may still occur.
If one of your organs or tissues has a decrease in the amount of oxygen that is getting to it, the condition is known as hypoxia. Just like with anoxia, even though your organ or tissue is getting an adequate amount of blood flow, hypoxia may still take place.
Many times, the two conditions of anoxia and hypoxia are spoken of as if they are the same. They are not. Anoxia is when no oxygen is reaching an organ or a tissue. Hypoxia is when an insufficient amount of oxygen is getting to a tissue or an organ.
There are five different types of anoxia. They are anemic anoxia, stagnant anoxia, histotoxic anoxia, affinity anoxia and anoxic anoxia.
Anoxic anoxia often results from there not being enough oxygen in the air for you to benefit from it. Anoxic anoxia develops when you are in an environment where there is not enough oxygen.
This is usually the case when you are at a high altitude. As you climb or go to a higher altitude, the amount of oxygen in the air decreases. There is thinner air, less oxygen and less air pressure.
Anoxic anoxia is called by other names. It is also known as hypoxic anoxia or hypoxemic anoxia.
Anoxic anoxia results when the pressure of oxygen outside of your body is not enough so that your hemoglobin can be loaded with gas. This leads to a lack of oxygen in your tissues that results in suffocation.
There are also many other things that can result in anoxic anoxia. These are things that can cause all of the types of anoxia, as well as anoxic anoxia. Some of these are:
- Electrical shock
- Compression of your trachea
- Improper exposure to anesthesia
- Brain tumors
- Respiratory disorders that interfere with your breathing
- Irregular heartbeat (cardiac arrhythmia)
- Carbon monoxide inhalation
- The use of illegal drugs
- Respiratory arrest
- Myocardial infarction (a heart attack)
- Near drowning
- Hypotension (extremely low blood pressure).
There are some signs and symptoms that may be an indication of stagnant anoxia. Some of these are:
- Loss of consciousness
- Vision changes
- Difficulty with reasoning and thinking
- Problems with movement
- Difficulty with memory.
The diagnosis of your anoxic anoxia is usually based on your signs and symptoms. Your doctor may also want to know about the circumstances surrounding your anoxic anoxia.
Your brain cells that die from anoxic anoxia cannot be replaced. Medications are not able to reverse the damage. However, some medications and rehabilitative therapies may be able to help with some of the difficulties that have arisen from anoxic anoxia, such as problems with movement and memory loss.
Anoxic anoxia and/or complications that have resulted from this condition may have brought about your disability? Anoxic anoxia may be keeping you from being able to work.
