  • Lesser Known Facts About Anoxic Brain Injury

    August 23, 2018

    When accidents happen, any part of the body can get injured. When these injuries occur in the head and brain areas, they have long term consequences on the life of the victim. Apart from the physical issues, such injuries also result in huge financial losses caused by the inability to work and earn wages to sustain normal life. Medical treatments, rehabilitation and continuing care are other areas where expenses can spiral out of control in case of long term or permanent disability.

    Most of us are aware of traumatic brain injury or TBI. However, a lesser known but equally serious type is the anoxic brain injury. Here the injury is not always caused by a blow to the head, skull fracture or penetration of the skull by sharp objects during a catastrophic accident. Anoxic brain injury is a result of oxygen deprivation to the brain. When oxygen is cut off, even briefly, the neural cells die and patients can suffer from diminished brain function. Continued oxygen deprivation leads to death.

    Choking, suffocation, blow to the windpipe, getting stuck under vehicles in a collision, or even a slip and fall injury that injures the windpipe and cuts off oxygen supply can result in anoxic brain injury. The common symptoms include disorientation, concussion, mood-changes, sleep disturbances, memory loss, behavioral changes etc. In the case of young children, this can be difficult to identify.

    Visit a qualified doctor immediately. Contact a personal injury lawyer without delay. If your accident was caused by another’s fault or negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
