The complete lack of Oxygen in the body is Anoxia.
Body parts need oxygen to work properly. Oxygen is like a fuel to them. However, If there is a lack of oxygen in the body, it will show fatal results. The cells may die if they don ' t get oxygen. It becomes life threatening if the Brain cells die due to lack of oxygen. It may be a result of Heart failure or respiratory failure.

Types of Anoxia
