Many things can happen during labor and delivery including oxygen deprivation
which can occur at any time during the pregnancy, but it most often occurs
during labor and delivery. Majority of the time, it’s often preventable.
Sadly, many medical facilities and professionals fail to take the appropriate
precautions and actions to prevent it.
The team at the Lancione Law Firm represent the victims of birth injury
in medical malpractice lawsuits. They take pride in holding these medical
professionals accountable for the harm they cause. Preventable medical
errors are one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United
States which is why it is so important that we take a stand against it
on the behalf of the victims. If your child has been harmed due to medical
negligence, it is important to take legal action.
Why Does Oxygen Deprivation Occur?
Oxygen deficiency can occur during pregnancy, labor or delivery for many
reasons including placental abruption, uterine rupture, preeclampsia,
delayed delivery and low amniotic fluid.
Monitoring the infant during labor is the responsibility of medical professionals
and if distress is detected, they must act quickly before oxygen deprivation
occurs. This occurs when your doctor or nurses are not properly monitoring
your baby and fail to tell the doctor in time of any fetal distress.

The long-term effects of oxygen deprivation can include problems with speech
or movement in the child’s future. Children will often have trouble
walking or controlling their balance. They may even face learning difficulties
and exhibit behavior problems. Some children suffer from autism or epilepsy,
both of which have been associated with oxygen deficiency at birth.
