Can Lack Of Oxygen At Birth Cause Behavioral Problems
Yes: Brainstem damage can affect the neural pathways which control eye movements. ...Read more
Hypoxia, is a condition in which the body as a whole or a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply. It is classified into 4 groups: - hypoxemic - oxygen is low - anemic - decreased ability for hemoglobin to carry oxygen. - ischemic - decreased blood flow. - histotoxic - oxygen is reaching the cells, but the cells are unable to use ...Read more
Yes it can: Many things can result from birth hypoxia: from nothing to severe cerebral palsy and death. Learning problems, behavioral problems, adhd, seizures occur at increased rates in neonatal hypoxia (oxygen deprivation). Not a good thing to have. If your baby suffered hypoxemia at birth, have her/him watched carefully by the pediatrician for the above problems. ...Read more
My 11 month gs has dysfunctional basal gagalia due to lack of oxygen at birth. So far has met all milestones. Are there different degrees seriousness?
Pediatric neuro: Patrick the best person to answer your question is a pediatric neurologist who will let the family know what to expect. ...Read more
Not necesarily: Some infants are rather quiet and ventilate well without ever crying. The iconic picture of a doc holding a kid up by its feet and slapping it on the bottom to get it to cry would be considered abusive by today's standards. It could hurt the hips and baby is allowed to pink upon its own with no negative effects. Monitoring of babies heart rate and breathing effort allow early intervention if needed. ...Read more
Many things..,,: Hypoxia refers to a decreased level of oxygen in the body. Many conditions can result in hypoxia including, but not limited to, lung conditions like acute asthma, copd, pulmonary embolism, etc., cardiac conditions like congestive heart failure, acute mi, valve abnormalities, etc., musculoskeletal conditions like als, diaphragmatic paralysis, etc. Hypoxia can lead to anxiety! ...Read more
No there is no evide: No there is no evidence of it. ...Read more
NO: But it can make you weak and tired. ...Read more
Possibly: It depends on the severity and length of deprivation. ...Read more
Asd or vsd: An atrial or ventricular septal defect(hole in the heart) that is small generally would not cause a problem with oxygenation. Moderately large or large size defects however can cause problems with oxygenation. ...Read more
Mechanical: Mechanical interference with full expansion of the lungs. ...Read more
An : An increase on co2 levels (hypercapnea) has more of a narcotizing effect than relative hypoxemia (lower oxygen), but either condition is unhealthy. You may very well have obstructive sleep apnea leading to daytime somnolence. You deserve a good cardio-pulmonary examination by your internist, and likely referral for a sleep study (polysomnogram=psg). ...Read more
No: No, it is caused by byproducts of the accelerated metabolism during exercise. ...Read more
Depends: Breathing difficulty can be associated with low oxygen delivery to the body and therefore the brain in multiple different conditions. Physicians can evaluate people for decreased oxygen delivery to the body through taking a history of their issues, performing physical exam, measuring oxygen saturation non-invasively as well as through other laboratory and diagnostic evaluation. ...Read more
When you pass out from lack of oxygen is the oxygen at that point low enough to cause brain damage?
Can lack of oxygen cause only top lip to become purple or would bottom be purple too. Sometimes the upper lip looks purple but the lower is pink.
Unlikely: If you smoke cigarettes and have less oxygen consider a smoking cessation program. Your doctor can help you with this. She can also get a spirometry to check your lungs. If you just noticed an upper purple lip and you are not a smoker it could be from eating ice or drinking a cold drink. ...Read more
Umbilical cord prolapse caused a 30-second lack of oxygen to the baby during delivery. Will the baby be okay?
Only 30 ???: I am reluctant to accept the initial statement as realistic. Once a cord begins to prolapse it can produce an intermittent but complete obstruction to blood flow that may add up to a significant o2 deficit over time. I'm not sure anyone can estimate the insult accurately. If only 30, probably no long term effect. If low 1/5/10 min apgars and seizures in the 1st 24hr,it was longer and more problemat ...Read more
70% brain damage, not in a single area, due to lack of oxygen (caused by asphyxia), what are the chances to awaken and regain full consciousness?
Unlikely: The extent of brain damage is not as important as the specific areas of the brain that are affected. So, if the pons or medulla were affected, you would be considered brain-dead already. But, if you loose that much area, you will have significant mental status changes and impairments of motor function. This is not a good circumstance. ...Read more
Can you heal or reverse brain damage cause at birth from lack of blood and oxygen to the brain with healing foods or any break through medications?
I'm sorry: Please forgive my frankness. Charlatans prey on the desperation of handicapped people to make money. Anyone offering you "healing foods" or some magic supplement is trying to scam you. However, there are whole practices of medicine that focus on helping folks with this kind of disability -- not with the hope of cure or reversing the tissue injury, but making life easier and more enjoyable. ...Read more
When I play basketball and doing weight lifting im easily tired and I feel sleepy? And sometimes I felt that I lack of oxygen? May I know the cause?
No there is no evide:
No there is no evidence to support this. It happens in near death experiences, sometimes spontaneously, and sometimes with physical and mental trauma, dehydration, sensory deprivation, sensory overload, use of psychedelic drugs, or dream like state.
But lack of oxygen is not the cause. ...Read more
Not good...: If you "black out" from lack of oxygen, it means your brain in not getting enough oxygen. It could also mean integer organs are not getting enough oxygen, like your heart, kidneys, liver, etc. You need to find out why you don't have enough oxygen and get treatment, which may include supplemental oxygen, if needed. ...Read more
