The area she struggles with most is seizures. In 2012, Campbell had a prolonged seizure (status epilepticus) where she suffered hypoxic brain damage after undergoing CPR for 20 minutes. Some of her current symptoms and level of function are a result of the hypoxia versus BOS. For example, she was hypotonic (low muscle tone) prior to the seizure and now is hypertonic (high muscle tone). She also received a tracheostomy due to her airway collapsing when they attempted to wean her off the ventilator.
