Examples Of Newborn Baby Complications That May Lead To Medical Negligence Claims

When you go to the hospital to deliver a baby, you expect to come home with a healthy boy or girl. Unfortunately, this doesn't always happen, and your baby may develop certain health conditions. Some of these conditions are preventable and treatable, which means you may have a medical negligence claim if they aren't prevented or treated. Examples of such conditions include:

Hypoxia

Your baby is said to be suffering from hypoxia if he or she isn't getting adequate oxygen to his or her brain. The condition usually arises shortly before, during or shortly after delivery. It has numerous causes including placental abruption, infection, oxygen deprivation and many others. Its complications include cognitive difficulties and cerebral palsy.

Hypoxia is a common issue in medical malpractices dealing with birth injuries because it is preventable. Doctors can prevent permanent damage by taking the necessary steps swiftly.

Infant Ischemia

Ischemia is a condition in which the baby's vital organs do not get adequate blood flow. It can lead to several complications depending on the part of the body that experiences reduced blood flow. For example, brain ischemia can lead to permanent brain damage.

Since it is difficult to detect the onset of infant ischemia, it is up to the medical personnel involved with the delivery to monitor the baby and ensure that he or she is getting adequate blood flow. If they fail to do this, and your baby gets injured, then you may have a case of medical negligence against them.

Untreated Newborn Jaundice

Your newborn develops jaundice if he or she has too much bilirubin in his or her blood. This is the substance that the body produces when it replaces its red blood cells. If your baby has jaundice, then his or her skin and eyes will be yellowish because this is the color of bilirubin.

The occurrence of newborn jaundice itself is not necessarily due to your doctor's actions. It can be caused by many things including medication, infections (such as syphilis), and even inherited disorders. However, your medical team should be able to detect and treat your newborn's jaundice soon after birth. Therefore, you may make a medical negligence claim if your newborn's jaundice is not detected and it leads to further medical complications.

These are just a few examples of complications that doctors should be able to deal with in newborn babies. Hopefully, you will never have to experience any of them in your life. However, if a complication does occur, and you believe it could have been prevented, then it is wise to contact the hospital for remedy and also consult an injury lawyer for damages recovery.
