Welcome to Healthcarecaremagic forum.

Strangulation at the level of neck with obstruction of blood vessel may cause hampering of blood supply with damage to brain tissue.
Obstruction of blood supply for 3-5 minutes is XXXXXXX to brain tissue.
Further damage depends on atherosclerosis in common carotid arteries in neck.
If already blocked due to atherosclerosis then there is increased chances of quick obstruction with strangulation and may cause damage.

With the available described details, it appears to be less damaging with no effect on brain tissue if blood supply is hampered for a second.
You should consult with XXXXXXX medicine specialist / neurologist and should go for thorough neurological check up.
10 XXXXXXX strokes may show its effect, depending on the affected area of brain.

You should go for PET scan to know the exact status of brain tissue damage.
You should take short course of steroid under guidance of your treating doctor.

Hope that helps.
Let me know your other queries.
Take care,
