More likely a drop in brain activity would do it.

Seems to support Susan Blackmore’s hypotheses in ‘Dying to live]’, in which she put forward the idea that many neurons in the brain become highly active under hypoxemia, because the neural disinhibition is the first thing that fails.
That book is already 20 years old.

Doesn’t cerebral hypoxia cause hallucinations anyway? Seems like it would.

No idea. I assume it can. But here I do not know more than I can google. I could try to find relevant passages in Blackmore's book.

I didn’t find anything on it either lazily digging through Wiki. Eh, it’s no big deal. It may vary by person anyway.

There is a Wiki article on NDEs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Near-death_experience

I know. But I was looking for more directly related medical wikis so I ignored it.
Come to think of it, I’ve never actually read that wiki. Huh. I may have to.
EDIT
Stuff and fixes.
