Hypoxic-Anoxic Brain Injury (HAI)
HAI occurs when the flow of oxygen to the brain is disrupted, essentially starving the brain and preventing it from performing vital biochemical processes. Hypoxic refers to a partial lack of oxygen; anoxic means a total lack. HAI can cause serious impairments in cognitive skills, as well as in physical, psychological and other functions.
Topics in this section include understanding Hypoxic-Anoxic Brain Injury, causes, treatment, and communicating, coping with and caring for people with HAI.
