When the brain is deprived of oxygen for four minutes or longer, brain injury can occur. This is called, anoxic brain injury. There are four types of anoxic brain injury - Anoxic Anemia, Anoxic Anoxia, Toxic Anoxia, and Stagnant Anoxia.
This show will delve into both Anoxic Anemia and Toxic Anoxia. Guests, brain injury survivors, Shelley Taylor and her daughter Taylor Trammell, will talk about anoxic anemia and Barbara Asby will discuss toxic anoxia. Please come hear their amazing stories of survival.
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!
