These children, if not controlled, will eat until they suffer from life-threatening obesity, including respiratory failure with hypoxia (low blood oxygen levels), cor pulmonale (right-sided heart failure), and death.
Tissue hypoxia, or oxygen deficiency, occurs next as a survival mechanism in the body kicks in, causing the blood vessels in the hands, feet, and other extremities to narrow in response to cold.
Asphyxia neonatorum is a neonatal emergency as it may lead to hypoxia (lowering of oxygen supply to the brain and tissues) and possible brain damage or death if not correctly managed.
The reduction of any or all of the three blood parameters reduces the oxygen-carrying capability of the blood, causing reduced oxygenation of body tissues, a condition called hypoxia.
These are substances that act as links in the inflammatory process, which promote further blood vessel damage, hypoxia, and cell destruction.
Hyperventilation hypoxia CPAP can help a patient lose the weight they need to lose to decrease their risks for recurring OHS.
Hyperfusion can lead to hypoxia in brain cells, and the lack of oxygen can lead to poor functioning or cell death.
Most fetuses, however, tolerate intrauterine hypoxia during labor and are delivered without complications.
If not correctly managed, asphyxia neonatorum will lead to hypoxia and possible brain damage or death.
Hypoxia, blood clots, and endothelial damage lead, in turn, to the release of inflammatory mediators.
