Hypoxic-ischemic brain injury subject of journal special edition

Hypoxic-ischemic brain injury, brain damage caused by the lack of sufficient amounts of oxygen is the subject of an entire special issue of NeuroRehabilitation: An International Journal (NRE). 

We frequently see the devastating brain damage caused by the lack of oxygen to the brain in medical malpractice cases including anesthesia errors, surgical errors causing massive bleeding and in emergency rooms where improper diagnoses are frequently made.  More information is provided by the brain injury law firm.

The brain requires large amount of oxygen to provide energy for all of its functions.  When the brain is deprived of sufficient amounts of oxygen, even for relatively short periods of time, extensive and permanent brain damage may result.

The special journal issues provides a thorough review of neuropathophysiology, neuroimaging assessment, and evaluation and management of the neurological and neurobehavioral sequelae of these injuries in adults and children.

The issue includes contributions on the following subjects:

Hypoxic-ischemic brain injury: Addressing the disconnect between pathophysiology and public policy which introduces the issue and defines the set of clinical conditions within the spectrum of HI-BI.

Hypoxic-ischemic brain injury – pathophysiology, neuropathology and mechanisms -a critical overview of the pathophysiology of HI-BI.

Neuroimaging of hypoxic-ischemic brain injury discusses current neuroimaging techniques and their current and potential applications to the clinical evaluation of persons with HI-BI.

Neurocognitive outcomes following neonatal encephalopathy with a focus on perinatal HI-BI, or neonatal encephalopathy.

Neurological sequelae of hypoxic-ischemic brain injury explores the neurological aftermath of HI-BI injuries.

Cognitive sequelae of hypoxic-ischemic brain injury: A review of the broad spectrum of post-hypoxic cognitive impairments and their treatments.

The syndrome of delayed post-hypoxic leukoencephalopathy address the under-recognized problem of delayed post-hypoxic leukoencephalopathy.

Hypobaric hypoxic cerebral insults: The neurological consequences of going higher offers insights on hypobaric (high-altitude) HI-BI.

Neurological and neurobehavioral sequelae of obstructive sleep apneaean provides a review of HI-BI consequences of OSA.
