Hypoxemia: Low blood oxygen levels can have damaging impacts

Some medical conditions impact how much oxygen is in the blood. For example, a baby who is in distress during labor or delivery might not get sufficient blood to the brain. A lack of oxygen in the blood is known as hypoxemia. Individuals who have this condition can suffer damage to various organs in the body, including the brain, heart, lungs, limbs, and other internal organs.

Cerebral hypoxia is always a medical emergency

Patients in hospitals sometimes have challenges that reduce the amount of oxygen they are getting. When the oxygen saturation in the blood is too low, they must be addressed immediately. This is considered an emergency because lack of oxygen can impact vital organs in the body. One that is particularly sensitive to a decrease in oxygen is the brain.

Seek compensation for your loved one's permanent brain damage

Brain injuries are very serious matters that can impact every area of your life. For some individuals, the impacts are seemingly temporary. As time progresses, they might recover some function, but not everyone is that fortunate. Some brain injuries, such as those caused by hypoxia, will impact the patient for their entire life. In these cases, the next of kin might choose to act on the patient's behalf and seek compensation for the damage.

Emotional trauma after a brain injury is possible

Suffering a brain injury can greatly change your life. One of the ways that this might happen is that your emotions might be impacted. This can be difficult to live with because you might feel that you aren't in control of what you are doing. It can also make it hard for your loved ones to remain around you because you might become angry with them for no reason at all.

Brain injuries can lead to learning disabilities in children

Parents want their children to succeed in school so that they can thrive in life. Unfortunately, some children don't have this option because they suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) at the hands of another person. This might occur due to a car wreck, a near-drowning, medical error or a host of other types of incidents. In all of these cases, there is a chance that the child will have lingering learning disabilities.

Brain injuries in high school students often go unnoticed

The causes of brain injuries vary greatly. Blows to the head can happen in a variety of circumstances, including car crashes or sports. Other factors, such as lack of oxygen or violent shaking can lead to them. It is imperative to do whatever you can to avoid situations that might result in this injury.

Weight control is crucial for traumatic brain injury survivors

People who have suffered from head injuries have a host of things that they have to worry about. According to a new study that was published in the Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation, obesity is now a concern for these individuals. It found that people who are obese or overweight after suffering a traumatic brain injury classified as moderate to severe have a greater risk of chronic diseases.

Catastrophic brain injuries require considerable care

Having to support a loved one who suffered a debilitating brain injury is difficult. When the injury is catastrophic, everything from personal care to finances might fall on your shoulders. This is a challenging position to be placed in. It can also be very stressful.

Impacts to your memory can come after a brain injury

A brain injury of any sort is tragic, not only because of the injury itself but also because of the way that it can impact you. Even minor injuries can lead to long-lasting effects on your mental capabilities. This can include altering your memory.
