Brain stroke is a medical emergency condition wherein the blood supply/flow to the brain is disrupted due to various reasons. As the blood supply drops, the brain cells in the corresponding areas with low or nearly no blood supply start to die resulting in loss of functionality of body parts, speech problems, paralysis and sometimes death.
Anoxic Brain Injury is a condition when the brain is deprived of oxygen supply as a result of which the brain cells start dying approximately after four minutes. Anoxic Brain Injury can be caused due to several reasons such as carbon monoxide poisoning, drowning etc which we will look at in detail in this article.
Ischemia is a condition when not enough blood flows to a particular part of the body. Trauma (such as a crush injury or thermal injury/burns) to any limb or any other muscular part of the body can damage the tissues directly and indirectly.
Wound is damage to the skin and/or the internal tissues and muscles on any part of the body. Wounds are broadly classified into closed and open wounds. Closed wounds refer to those injuries that have damaged the internal tissues but the skin remain intact or with very little visible damage. Examples of closed wounds are injuries that bleed internally, high impact thrust during an accident etc.
