Cerebral Hypoxia

« Back to Glossary Index

The term cerebral hypoxia refers to a condition in which there is a decrease in oxygen supply to the brain even though there is adequate blood flow. Symptoms of mild cerebral hypoxia include inattentiveness, poor judgment, memory loss, and a decrease in motor coordination. When hypoxia lasts for an extended period of time it can result in coma, seizures, or even brain death.
