Oxygen Deficiency

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.
