Anoxic Brain Injury
Anoxic brain injury is a type of brain injury caused by oxygen deprivation. This can cause serious damage, as the brain depends on oxygen to function properly. In fact, brain cells without enough oxygen will begin to die after about six minutes.
There are several ways someone could suffer anoxic brain damage. Nearly drowning, experiencing a decrease of oxygen flow to the brain due to a heart issue and overdosing on drugs are just a few examples. The effects of an anoxic brain injury can range from balance issues, memory loss, vision problems and/or loss of consciousness.
The use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can promote healing by restoring oxygen levels, and thus, improving the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the brain. This can result in blood vessel growth and damaged tissue repair, among other benefits.
