Ohio Birth Injury Attorneys Investigate Birth Injuries Caused by Hypoxia
Cerebral hypoxia is a condition caused by lack of oxygen supply to the brain or other area of the body. During the delivery process, a lack of oxygen to a baby’s brain can cause permanent brain damage. Similarly, a lack of oxygen to another body part can cause significant damage.
Fetal hypoxia can be caused by medical negligence during the delivery process. Doctors and other medical professionals are expected to take measures to prevent this dangerous condition. Unfortunately, medical malpractice is often to blame for causing this condition:
- Failure to monitor fetus during pregnancy or childbirth
- Failure to diagnose bacterial infection
- Failure to perform a timely C-section
- Trauma to the brain during delivery
The results of a hypoxia brain injury may not be immediately noticed. In fact, years may go by before the full extent of the birth injury may be known. Even then, the signs of hypoxia brain damage may be hard to recognize, or confused as another condition.
