Anoxia in reference to babies is the complete deprivation of oxygen to the brain at birth. Partial lack of oxygen to the brain of a new born is called Hypoxia. The brain is a sensitive organ which needs oxygen in order to survive and function. Lack of oxygen to the brain at birth can cause permanent brain injury damage in a baby, which is devastating to victims and their families. There are lawyers who specialize in this type of birth trauma case. Brain damage or brain injury can cause conditions such as cerebral palsy and mental retardation in newborns.
Anoxic injury in a newborn is the most common cause of damage to a baby’s brain and nervous system. Attending medical staff are responsible for monitoring a baby during delivery and should take appropriate action to avoid such situations as Anoxia.
