What is Perinatal Hypoxia?
Perinatal hypoxia is a lack of oxygen to an infant’s brain tissue before, during, or after birth. Oxygen deprivation can cause permanent brain damage and serious complications such as hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy and cerebral palsy.
What Causes Perinatal Hypoxia?
Many times perinatal hypoxia is the result of a medical professional’s failure to recognize or respond to fetal distress. This failure may occur while the infant is in utero or during labor and delivery. Sadly, perinatal hypoxia is often preventable.
Obstetricians may prevent perinatal hypoxia by diagnosing and treating early warning signs during pregnancy.
What are the Effects of Perinatal Hypoxia?
Brain cells die when deprived of oxygen, leading to permanent brain damage. Mild effects may cause inhibited physical, cognitive, and behavioral functioning. Severe brain damage can result in death.
