Anoxic Brain Injury Lawyers in Dallas
What is an Anoxic Brain Injury?
Anoxic brain injury is a term used to describe an injury to the brain from lack of oxygen. Our brains require a certain amount of oxygen to function properly, and brain cells will begin to die if they fail to receive an adequate amount for an extended period of time.
Anoxic brain injuries can occur when there is a total lack of oxygen flow to the brain for about five minutes, and the injuries will only become more severe the longer the brain goes without oxygen. Without proper monitoring, this lack of oxygen could go undiagnosed for long enough to cause permanent brain damage and require the victim to be taken care of for the rest of their life.

Causes of an Anoxic Brain Injury
Anyone can suffer from this type of brain injury if the flow of oxygen to their brain is limited or cut off. Medical professionals should be fully aware of a patient’s medical history and be prepared to provide immediate assistance, especially if the patient has a history or is at risk of a heart attack, stroke, and/or clotting.
Permanent brain damage can set in in a matter of minutes so every delay only increases the chances that the victim will never be able to make a full recovery. If you have sustained an anoxic brain injury, you may be able to fight for compensation by filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Anoxic Brain Injuries in Infants
Adults who suffer from an anoxic brain injury will likely require lifelong care. Unfortunately, these situations can arise from lack of proper monitoring of breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure issues. Without prompt recognition and treatment, a person can suffer irreversible brain damage from lack of blood flow and oxygen to their brain.
Infants are also some of the most vulnerable patients at risk of this type of brain injury. The truly unfortunate truth about anoxic brain injuries is that the vast majority could be avoided with proper monitoring and immediate action.
With regard to infant anoxic brain injuries, the Fetal Heart Monitor allows doctors to keep a close eye on the infant, and they should be prepared to act at the first sign that something is wrong. Whether they missed the signs of distress, failed to notify someone in time, or failed to act quickly in response, negligence can lead to permanent brain damage and even death.
Some of the most devastating injuries resulting from an anoxic brain injury include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Learning disabilities
- Persistent vegetative state
- The requirement of lifelong care
