I know there are different causes of death for humans like heart disease, cancer, stroke, injury and so on, but i was thinking if in every case in the last instance death is due to hypoxia/anoxia.
Am i missing other mechanisms ?
What i'm searching are the last mechanism that cause the organism to collapse and die.
E.g. (non detailed just an example)
In the case of heart disease, a plaque could lead to the block of a myocardial artery followed by local hypoxia/anoxya that kills the heart tissue followed by cardiac arrest and death by general anoxia.
