Can one die of anoxia if fainting?

Can one die of anoxia if fainting?

Generally no: A simple faint restores adequate blood flow to the brain as you become horizontal, and recovery is forthcoming. If you die from a faint it can be from a fatal arrhythmia (such as from long qt syndrome or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.). A physician can help determine if there is cause for concern.

A person who had anoxia has what type of personality?

Anoxia = no oxygen: Anoxia is the medical term for total lack of oxygen, which is not a personality feature. Someone who has been oxygen-deprived due to illness or injury can develop "anoxic brain injury" which varies in severity from total permanent coma to milder symptoms such as confusion, forgetfulness, physical weakness, disinhibition (doing things that aren't socially appropriate) and difficulty learning.

Does anoxia leading to hie happen because of a disease?

Does anoxia leading to hie happen because of a disease?

More event than ill: Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy is by definition caused by lack of blood flow (&o2) resulting in damage to the brain. Consider a sudden loss of blood presure (bp) in a pregnant mom where blood doesn't flow thru the placenta or a baby whose unstable BP slows blood flow thru the brain. Either prevents nutrients from getting to the brain & injury occurs. An illness may cause a drop BP & trigger process.

Weight gain, BP check, fetal heart rate and any maternal concerns are discussed at each visit. A sonogram may be done to see if the fetus is growing properly. Blood work is usually done the first visit and culture for gbs at 36 weeks.

How do I choose a pre-natal vitamin?

How do I choose a pre-natal vitamin?

Many good ones but..: There are many good prenatal vitamins. One of the most important ingredients is folic acid, proven to prevent neural tube defects, but I have become aware of research suggesting that synthetic Folic Acid may increase breast cancer risk. Safest choice may be one that provides the natural 5-mthf form of folate such as basic prenatal by thorne research and prenatal pro by designs for health.

Is it okay if I don't get prenatal care?

Is it okay if I don't get prenatal care?

Ok if you don't mind: Dying from preventable short- or long-term avoidable complications, or have serious fetal problems go untreated, which otherwise can cause fetal death. The serious complication and death rate for pregnancy has decreased enormously in the past century because of huge breakthroughs in prenatal care. You are entitled to choose 17th century prenatal care, but I personally would not recommend it.
