Strangulation, also known as strangulation, refers to the action of compressing the front of the neck, resulting in compression of the carotid arteries and/or trachea. This can lead to reduced oxygen supply to the brain and impede normal breathing. The consequences of strangulation can be serious, even fatal, as it can lead to unconsciousness and death from asphyxia.

Strangulation can be intentional, as in the case of physical violence or homicide, or accidental, as in the case of an accident or a game gone wrong. In cases of intentional strangulation, there is a high risk of serious damage, such as neck fractures, brain damage, impaired consciousness and even death.

It is important to note that some people may seek hypoxia-induced sensations in erotic practices. However, these activities are extremely high-risk and can lead to fatal accidents. We therefore strongly advise against engaging in such practices, as the consequences can be irreversible.

In the event of strangulation, it is vital to seek medical assistance immediately. Even if the person appears to recover after strangulation, life-threatening complications can occur later due to damage to the internal structures of the neck.

Strangulation is the action of compressing the front of the neck, resulting in compression of the carotid arteries and/or trachea. It can have serious consequences, including fainting and death by asphyxia. Strangulation may be deliberate or accidental, but in all cases it poses significant risks to the health and life of those involved. It is essential to seek immediate medical assistance in the event of strangulation.


Types of strangulation

Strangulation can be:

  • voluntary:
    • suicide attempt,
    • murder,
    • erotic practice,
    • etc.
  • accidental:
    • compression by a falling object,
    • clothing caught by a machine,
    • etc.

Consequences of strangulation

The compression of the neck can lead to:

  • fractures,
  • disturbances of consciousness,
  • fatal accidents,
  • cerebral ischemia,
  • loss of consciousness
  • cardiac arrest.

Risks related to strangulation

The sensations caused by hypoxia are sought by some people in erotic practices, but this can cause fatal accidents. It is important to note that strangulation can result in irreversible injury or death. It is therefore crucial to avoid any form of strangulation, whether voluntary or accidental.
