What are some disorders that can be caused by the baby not getting enough oxygen to the Brain? And which of them are most similar to a vegetative state
Different issues...: Time to talk with the baby's pediatrician, as a parent can get confused about what's happening to the baby. Being in a vegetative state is what we humans all try to avoid, because vegetative means we have only a portion of the life we are supposed to have as animals. Not getting enough oxygen is a different issue. One has to ask about oxygen... how little, for how long, in what kind of patient. ...Read more
Will you die faster from lack of oxygen to the brain or glucose or other nutrients not getting to the brain?
4 minutes or more: In the event of a full blown cardiac arrest there can be brain damage in as little as 4 to 5 minutes without circulation at normal body temperature. If the body had been cooled by submersion in cold water it could be much longer. Less severe lack of oxygen will take longer to produce brain damage. ...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?

All nutrients.: Your brain cells need whatever your other cells in your body need, only more often. One nutrient needed most is glucose, which is vital to correct brain function. That's why hypoglycemia is so very dangerous to the brain, as a drop in glucose can mean death of brain cells. Oxygen is also very important, and a lack of oxygen to the brain can cause massive brain cell death or a stroke. ...Read more

Why do people yawn? I heard yawning is a sign that your brain isn't getting enough oxygen. Is this true?

The theory is that the yawning will cause you to take a deep breath and inhale more oxygen and exhale the excess carbon dioxide. ...Read more
