Intentional self-harm by hanging, strangulation and suffocation

(Suffocation, Hanging, Strangulation, Intentional Self-Harm)

Self-harm is intentional behavior that is considered harmful to oneself. Hanging is killing a person by suspending them from the neck with a noose or ligature. Strangling is compression of the neck that may lead to unconsciousness or death by causing an increasingly hypoxic state in the brain. Asphyxia or asphyxiation is a condition of deficient supply of oxygen to the body which arises from abnormal breathing.
