Tissue Injury Causes Hypoxia Free Radicals Thermal Extremes Radiation Chemical and Biological agents Other Causes

Hypoxia Most common cause of cellular injury. Decreased oxygen in the air Decreased hemoglobin Pulmonary or Cardiac disease Shock – Respiratory failure ( ↓ PO 2 ) Disruption in oxidative enzymes within the cells (i.e. cyanide poisoning)

Most Common Causes of Hypoxia Ischemia most common cause Impaired blood flow d/t clot or arterial occlusive disease Impaired O 2 carrying capacity (CO) Hypoxia vs. Anoxia Severe damage occurs in 3-5 minutes

Free Radicals Unstable molecules Capable of injurious bonding with proteins, lipids and carbohydrates to damage membranes and nucleic acids Final common pathway for injury from many sources Can be an issue reperfusion injury
Background image of page 6
Free Radicals Sources Tobacco smoke Radiation Pollutants Internal unstable molecules Oxidative stress Antioxidants Block synthesis or inactivate free radicals Endogenous : The five important endogenous antioxidants are superoxide dismutase (sod), glutathione peroxidase, alpha lipoic acid (ala), catalase and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Exogenous Vitamin A, C, E Beta-carotene

Reperfusion Injury Restoration of O 2 can cause additional injury. Hypoxia ↓ cellular protection against free radicals • Reperfusion replenishes O 2 but also provides a fresh supply of free radicals
