What is the permanent damage to the brain after 10 minutes without oxygen?

The brain can survive without oxygen for about 3 minutes before it is permanently damaged. After 3 minutes there is likely to be severe brain damge which usually leads to a coma. If you survive the coma you will probably have very limited brain function i.e. not being able to walk or talk. After 10 minutes, (without special measures such as freezing) the brain will most likely be dead.
