Fetal Hypoxic And Ischemic Injuries
The majority of birth injury claims involve hypoxic and ischemic injuries. The problem is a lack of oxygen or blood flow to the child during the birthing process. Hospitals should have all the diagnostic equipment and training needed to know when a baby is losing blood flow or oxygen, and they should be able to handle the situation without allowing more serious injuries to come to the child.
Failure To Intubate
Another common birth injury cause is the failure to intubate during cesarean section (C-section) delivery. Intubation is a process of inserting a tube to assist with blood flow or air flow. During a C-section, someone with the training and skills must be present to do a full intubation and tracheal intubation during the procedure. In far too many cases, the medical professionals fail to perform this procedure, resulting in serious injuries or death of the child.
