Stagnant anoxia is a serious condition that requires immediate medical attention. First and foremost, oxygen to the deprived tissues or organs needs to be restored. Doctors must figure out what is causing the interference of blood flow in a person's veins and try to repair it. Afterwards, they can assess what degree of damage has occurred locally and to the brain and begin determining how long recovery will take. Daily management of the condition depends on what caused the stagnant anoxia and how much damage to the brain and/or other organs has occurred.
