What is Hypoxia?

Anoxia is an extremely severe form of hypoxia where oxygen is almost absent in the tissues. Lack of oxygen supply to the brain tissues can be fatal and symptoms occur just minutes after inadequate oxygen supply. It is usually irreversible and affects vital organs such as the brain, heart, etc.
