What is ischemic hypoxia?
n. Tissue hypoxia resulting from slower circulation through the tissues so that oxygen tension in capillaries is less than normal, even though saturation, content, and tension in arteries are normal. stagnant anoxia.
What is the difference between hypoxia and cyanosis?
Hypoxia is a low oxygen tension in the blood, while tension refers to the concentration of a dissolved gas. Cyanosis is the blue color which appears when around 4 grams of haemoglobin is deoxygenated, this represents the absolute level of deoxyHb, which means cyanosis may be absent in conditions such as anemia.
Is hypoxia or ischemia more dangerous to the brain?
A closely related disease to brain ischemia is brain hypoxia. Brain hypoxia is the condition in which there is a decrease in the oxygen supply to the brain even in the presence of adequate blood flow. If hypoxia lasts for long periods of time, coma, seizures, and even brain death may occur.
What is myocardial hypoxia?
Myocardial hypoxia is the result of disproportion between oxygen supply and demand.
