If your child has suffered hypoxic brain damage, call (503) 862-8666 to schedule a free consultation.

How Hypoxic Brain Injuries Happen

Hypoxia occurs when oxygen is restricted, and the body begins to operate at a deficiency. This can result in certain organs shutting down or sustaining damage. During the birth process, umbilical cord compression can reduce oxygen and lead to hypoxic brain damage. A decrease in oxygen can lead to catastrophic injury, especially in a newborn baby with a rapidly developing brain.

Hypoxic brain injury can lead to problems that include:

  • Developmental disorders
  • Permanent speech and communication disabilities
  • Vision or hearing loss or impairment
  • Motor and balance impairment
  • Seizure disorders

Tissue can begin to die after four minutes without oxygen. As a result, hypoxic brain injuries are always damaging. Healthcare providers have a responsibility for protecting the life and well-being of newborns. If your baby has suffered serious injury or developmental delays caused by hypoxic brain damage, our Portland birth injury lawyer can help.
