Stage names are used to identify the stages of the body, but what happens when the body doesn’t have enough oxygen?
In a new study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists from the University of Michigan and the University at Buffalo found that the body’s respiratory and circulatory systems can be “slowly and intermittently depleted” of oxygen as a result of hypothermics, which in turn cause an increased risk of hypoxia-related diseases.
The researchers looked at two different sets of data: one from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the other from the American Heart Association.
Their analysis revealed that the rate of oxygen depletion in the circulatory system, which helps regulate blood flow, can increase with stage, while the rate is reduced with the respiratory system.
The authors found that a lower oxygen level in the respiratory tract could lead to an increase in respiratory rate, but also to a decrease in the amount of oxygen circulating through the body.
They further found that hypoxemia leads to an increased rate of cardiac arrhythmias, including ventricular tachycardia, which is associated with an increased cardiac risk.
The two sets of results showed that the circulating system was slow to replenish the body with oxygen as compared to the respiratory, heart, and blood systems, which can replenish it within a few minutes.
These results may explain why the hypothermy stage is associated so much with heart attack rates, as the heart becomes overwhelmed by a decrease of blood flow.
In other words, when the respiratory and blood system is depleted, the body will be less efficient at clearing out the oxygen from the body and may eventually die.
The findings also suggest that there may be other reasons for the higher risk of death associated with hypothermal stage than the cardiovascular component of the condition.
“We see hypotherms as a cause of cardiac arrest,” said study co-author Dr. Christopher Sperry, a research fellow in the Department of Health and Human Services at the University.
“We think there are other underlying mechanisms that may be contributing to the higher mortality.”
The researchers said that they found that even though it’s rare to see a person die of hypoxic-ischemic syndrome, it is a cause for concern.
“It’s a really bad thing, but the evidence is so overwhelming,” Sperriksaid.
“I think the data is there.”
