Brain Hypoxia-Ischemia (Hypoxia Ischemia, Brain) Summary

Description: A disorder characterized by a reduction of oxygen in the blood combined with reduced blood flow (ISCHEMIA) to the brain from a localized obstruction of a cerebral artery or from systemic hypoperfusion. Prolonged hypoxia-ischemia is associated with ISCHEMIC ATTACK, TRANSIENT; BRAIN INFARCTION; BRAIN EDEMA; COMA; and other conditions.

Also Known As: Hypoxia Ischemia, Brain; Hypoxia-Ischemia, Brain; Encephalopathy, Anoxic-Ischemic; Encephalopathy, Hypoxic-Ischemic; Anoxia Ischemia, Brain Show All >>
