Cerebral hypoxia occurs as the result of decreased oxygen supply to the brain, even with adequate blood flow. When this condition happens during surgery or childbirth, the negligence of a medical provider might be to blame. To discuss your child's birth injury Center or Page related to cerebral hypoxia with an experienced Phoenix cerebral hypoxia lawyer, contact Patton Law Practice.
In addition to surgical error and birthing complications, complications of general anesthesia can also create conditions that can lead to cerebral hypoxia. When hypoxia lasts for long periods of time, it can cause life-threatening conditions such as comas, seizures, and even brain death. In some cases, the fact that hypoxia occurred may not be known or disclosed, and long-term effects of a decrease in oxygen supply may not be immediately obvious.
Symptoms of mild cerebral hypoxia include inattentiveness, poor judgment, memory loss, and a decrease in motor coordination. The inability to concentrate and lack of coordination might result in permanent disability to the victim of cerebral hypoxia, particularly when the victim is an infant or a child.
