Is there a cure for stagnant anoxia?

Stagnant anoxia is cured by the restoration of an adequate oxygen supply to impaired organs and tissues. The effects of stagnant anoxia can be more difficult to deal with than the actual condition, depending on how long a person has been experiencing oxygen deprivation. It takes just a few minutes without oxygen for the brain and heart to begin to die. If a person's system has been without oxygen for an extended period of time, they may have permanent and significant neurological and psychological problems. However, if little damage has been done, the outlook for full recovery is quite good.
