  • contrast, lack of oxygen ( anoxia ) may result in a coma that lasts for several weeks and is often fatal. (britannica.com)
  • result from insufficient oxygen ( anoxia ) during a difficult and prolonged delivery or from the condition known as kernicterus, in which the baby becomes jaundiced because of incompatibility between its blood and that of the mother. (britannica.com)
  • with lack of oxygen ( anoxia ). (britannica.com)
  • Anoxia is a scientific term which refers to insufficient oxygen levels in the tissues of an organ, despite unrestricted blood flow. (medicalmalpracticehelp.com)
  • To begin treating anoxia, oxygen is usually added to the patient's air supply in order to supplement it. (medicalmalpracticehelp.com)
  • The crucian carp (Carassius carassius) has an exceptional ability to tolerate anoxia, being able to survive without oxygen for several months at low temperatures. (uio.no)
  • The amount of apoptotic cells did not increase significantly after 7 days of anoxia (at 9 °C). However, when the anoxic fish were given 1 day of reoxygenation at normal oxygen levels, a 170 % increase in the number of apoptotic cells was detected. (uio.no)
  • One possibility is that anoxia initiates apoptotic pathways in the brain without leading to actual cell death until oxygen is restored. (uio.no)
  • Presentation for the 2008 University Scholars Day at the University of North Texas discussing sex, stress, oxygen deprivation, and gender-specific phenotypes modulate survival in anoxia. (unt.edu)
  • The episodes of anoxia came about at times when very high sea levels coincided with the nearby Sevier orogeny that affected Laramidia to the west and Caribbean large igneous province to the south, which delivered nutrients and oxygen-adsorbing compounds into the water column. (wikipedia.org)
  • Control measures for T. bisselliella (and similar species) include the following: Anoxic measures work by displacing oxygen with an inert gas, asphyxiating the insects Carbon dioxide anoxia - Similar to cryofumigation, but using compressed dry carbon dioxide gas to exclude oxygen Treatment for one week at 25 °C (77 °F) is recommended. (wikipedia.org)
  • anoxia Completely lacking in oxygen. (wikipedia.org)
  • Anoxia is further influenced by biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), which is the amount oxygen used by marine organisms in the process of breaking down organic matter. (wikipedia.org)
  • cardiac
  • What emerges is that cold temperature substantially modifies cardiac electrophysiology to precondition the heart for winter anoxia. (biomedsearch.com)
  • To investigate whether low temperature protects cardiac performance during anoxia, we studied the effects of an acute temperature change, from 10°C to either 5°C, 15°C or 18°C, upon the performance of in situ perfused trout hearts before, during and after exposure to 20 min of anoxia. (biologists.org)
  • Using in situ perfused hearts from trout, we investigate the effects of temperature on routine and maximal cardiac performance during normoxia, anoxia and following recovery from anoxia. (biologists.org)
  • occur
  • Fetal anoxia may occur from inadequate oxygenation of the mother, low maternal blood pressure, or abnormalities in the uterus, placenta, or umbilical cord that result in inadequate blood flow to the fetus. (britannica.com)
  • Anoxia and sulfidic conditions often occur together. (wikipedia.org)

  • supply
  • These adaptations solve the main problem encountered during anoxia, which is to supply cells with enough ATP. (uio.no)
  • causes
  • Because anoxia causes significant amounts of distress to the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, it is essential to identify and treat the problem with haste. (medicalmalpracticehelp.com)
  • share
  • This is unfortunate, because anoxia can be easily confused for other problems which share similar symptoms such as a pulmonary embolism, polycythemia vera, or pulmonary hypertension. (medicalmalpracticehelp.com)
  • water
  • Ash and dissolved trace metals from Sevier and Caribbean eruptions provided nutrients to the water column, which was the driving mechanism for anoxia in the Western Interior Seaway. (wikipedia.org)
