Because of the need to breath by homsapiens, the lack of oxygen forces the blood to pump less oxigenated blood or not pump at all. Without oxygen the body begins to break down and die with the brain beginning to die within 4 minutes of not having oxygen. The heart with not have necessary nutrients or energy to pump as well.
