    Hypoxic hypoxia is a result of insufficient oxygen available to the lungs. A blocked airway, a drowning or a reduction in partial pressure are examples of how lungs can be deprived of oxygen. Some medical examples are abnormal pulmonary function or respiratory obstruction, or a right-to-left shunt in the heart. Hypoxic hypoxia is seen in patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, neuromuscular diseases or interstitial lung disease. Some symptoms of hypoxic hypoxia are: ⁕Cyanosis ⁕Headache ⁕Decreased reaction time ⁕Impaired judgment time ⁕Euphoria ⁕Visual impairment ⁕Drowsiness ⁕Lightheaded or dizzy sensation ⁕Tingling in fingers and toes ⁕Numbness
