Florida Perinatal Hypoxia Attorney
Let Us Help You Seek Compensation for Your Child’s Injury
Perinatal hypoxia describes a condition immediately before or after birth
when an infant’s tissues experience oxygen deficiency. In some cases,
a baby may stop breathing because of birth complications, and lack of
oxygen, as a result, can cause some of the infant’s brain cells
to die. Sometimes, this issue could lead to cerebral palsy, which is a
condition that can affect a child for the rest of his or her life.
If your infant was harmed because of medical negligence or carelessness,
the person responsible should be held accountable for his or her actions.

Causes of Perinatal Hypoxia
There are many reasons an infant could experience oxygen deprivation before
and after birth. Major causes of perinatal hypoxia include the following:
- Placental abruption
- Maternal smoking
- Traumatic brain damage
- Lack of adequate fetal monitoring
- Birth asphyxia
- Maternal anemia
In some cases, conditions that could cause oxygen deprivation could be
predicted by the physician before the birth even takes place. If most
doctors would have recommended a cesarean section (C-section) when your
doctor failed to perform one, he or she may be guilty of medical malpractice.
Perinatal hypoxia is a serious injury that could lead to severe medical
complications among infants. Severe brain damage, for example, could cause
whole-body paralysis or learning issues. An infant with perinatal hypoxia
is likely to experience the full effect of the condition 48 hours after
birth, which means the impact of perinatal hypoxia can also be minimized
if the situation is addressed within the 1st 48 hours after birth.
Other conditions perinatal hypoxia can cause include the following:
- Cerebral palsy
- Behavioral disorders
- Severe seizures
