Histotoxic Anoxia and Receiving Social Security Disability

Anoxia is a condition that is characterized by an absence of oxygen supply to a tissue or an organ. This is in spite of there being an adequate amount of blood flow to that organ or tissue. Hypoxia is a condition that is evidenced by a decrease in oxygen to an organ or a tissue. Again, as with anoxia, this takes place in spite of there being an adequate blood flow to that tissue or organ. Anoxia and hypoxia are often used interchangeably. This is in spite of the fact that they refer to conditions that are similar but different. Hypoxia refers to a condition that involves a decrease in oxygen reaching a tissue or an organ, while anoxia refers to a condition in which there is no oxygen reaching an organ or a tissue. There are five different forms of anoxia. They are stagnant anoxia, anemic anoxia, anoxic anoxia, affinity anoxia and histotoxic anoxia. Histotoxic anoxia is anoxia that develops in spite of the fact that your body is receiving an adequate amount of oxygen. The problem is that your body is not able to use the oxygen because of physiological difficulties that are occurring at a cellular level. Histotoxic anoxia is usually brought about by exposure to toxic substances. This can include things like acetone, toluene, formaldehyde and certain anesthetic agents. Histotoxic anoxia may result from substance abuse. This can be things like the excessive drinking of alcohol or excessive use of narcotics.

In these instances, the ability of the hemoglobin in your blood to carry, bind and release oxygen are inhibited by these poisonous substances. There are also several other things that can lead to histotoxic anoxia. These are things that may result in all of the various kinds of anoxia, in addition to histotoxic anoxia.
