Hypoxic-anoxic brain injuries occur when the brain does not receive sufficient oxygen.

Understanding Hypoxic-Anoxic Brain Injuries & Their Consequences

Within minutes of being deprived oxygen, brain cells will begin to die. The brain requires a constant flow of oxygen and actually consumes about one-fifth of the body’s overall oxygen supply.
