Term of the week:

Hypoxia

A condition of increased respiration, disorientation, and poor judgment caused by breathing air that is less than 15% oxygen. When air with concentrations of less than 10% oxygen is breathed, hypoxia culminates in loss of consciousness and death. Hypoxia can be exacerbated by high levels of carbon dioxide in the air, which causes quicker and deeper breathing of the oxygen-poor air.
