Hypoxia Effects

Physiological response to hypoxia is commonly seen. It depends upon speed and severity of the oxygen lack. The response may be direct or indirect.

The direct Hypoxia effects are on cardiorespiratory systems and the secondary effects are due to the failure of organs like brain, liver, kidney and heart.

The Hypoxia effects on these organs are:

• In liver, there is centrilobular necrosis.

• There is fibrosis of liver cells.

• Intra renal red Iribution of blood flow.

• Low formation of electrolytes.
