Oxygen Deprivation

Streaming Video - 2009
Rate this:
The human brain suffers irreversible damage if deprived of oxygen for even a few minutes-a fact Dr. Gunther von Hagens demonstrates in this program, utilizing human cadavers. Simulating an artery injury to illustrate oxygen depletion through blood loss, von Hagens then focuses on problems affecting the trachea, the top priority for ER doctors. Von Hagens inserts an endoscope into his own throat and saws a frozen body in half to reveal the major structures of the airway-showing how easily they can be blocked by foreign objects. Red Cross first aid expert Emma Rand explains simple techniques for clearing the airway, while emergency medicine consultant Dr. John Heyworth shows how paramedics treat complex trachea damage.
