If someone is losing consciousness or you suspect that they've had an anoxic brain injury, call 911 to get medical help immediately. An anoxic brain injury is a medical emergency. The underlying cause of the anoxic brain injury needs be treated, and any necessary life-support systems - such as mechanical ventilation - need to be established.

What should I do if I suspect someone has had an anoxic brain injury?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Can I live at home after a stroke?
Most stroke survivors are able to return home and resume many of the activities they were involved in before the stroke. Leaving the hospital may seem scary at first because so many things may have changed. The hospital staff can help prepare you to move home or perhaps to another setting that can better meet your needs.
What is the difference between doctors of osteopathy and chiropractors?
Boston Women's Health Book Collective, Administration, answered
Doctors of osteopathy (D.O.'s) are physicians licensed to do everything that M.D.'s do, but osteopaths also learn spinal manipulation (though some D.O.'s choose not to incorporate manipulation into their practice). Doctors of Chiropractic (D.C.'s) are trained at four-year chiropractic colleges. Some chiropractors restrict their practice to spinal adjustments, while others expand their practices to include other therapies. Chiropractors are licensed in every state of the U.S., and insurance generally covers chiropractic care. Both osteopaths and chiropractors use spinal adjustment to try to optimize the body's functioning.
