hypoxia

Condition in which there is an abnormally low level of oxygen in the blood and tissues.

Hypoxia

A deficiency of oxygen in the tissues.

Hypoxia

[environmental] Hypoxia refers to low oxygen conditions. Normally 20.9% of the gas in the atmosphere is oxygen. The partial pressure of oxygen in the atmosphere is 20.9% of the total barometric pressure. In water however; oxygen levels are much lower, approximately 1%, and fluctuate locally depending on the presence of photosynthetic organi...
