Lack of oxygen to the brain

Hello Dear,
You need to consult a cardiologist and go in for complete cardiological investigations to find the cause leading to the lack of oxygen supply to the brain. The severity of cerebral ischemia, caused by arterial obstruction, and the duration of blood-flow loss in the brain determine the extent of brain damage. There could be temporary dysfunction of the neurons or there may be irreversible damage to nerve cells sensitive to minute changes in oxygen levels. Cerebral infarction  can cause severe damage to extensive areasof brain..
