Proper and Prompt Treatment of Birth Asphyxia Is Critical
According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, birth asphyxia is typically caused by a lack of oxygen during birth. It can lead to dangerous chemical reactions that result in low oxygen or excessive acid in the blood.
If birth asphyxia is suspected, a full range of tests might be required for confirmation. Many of the treatments that might prevent birth asphyxia from occurring start before and during the birthing process. If none of these options were presented to you, we can help you determine if you have the basis for a birth injury or medical malpractice lawsuit.
