Hi Anon,

 Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for your question. Sorry to hear this about your daughter. 

Treatment for anoxic brain injury are:

Initial Treatment

Oxygen therapy to increase the amount of oxygen in the blood

Medication to help get adequate oxygenated blood to the brain

Efforts to cool the brain to help limit brain damage


Recovery from brain damage can be uncertain. It will also take time. Your chance for recovery depends on how long and how severely you were deprived of oxygen. Many people with mild brain damage can usually recover most of the lost functions.

During rehabilitation, you and your family may work with:

Physical therapist to retrain motor skills, such as walking

Occupational therapist to improve daily skills, such as dressing and going to the bathroom

Speech therapist to work on language problems

Psychologist for behavior and emotional issues related to the injury

Recovery can take months, or even years. In many cases, full recovery is never achieved, but some can successfully learn to live with any remaining disabilities. In general, the sooner rehabilitation starts, the better the outcome. Hope this information has helped. 

Here are some resources for you
