Perinatal asphyxia is one of the most common and complicated problems in newborns. It occurs when the baby simply does not get enough oxygen while breathing, leading to a deficiency in the blood. In a mild form, perinatal asphyxia can cause labored breathing. As it aggravates, it might lead to seizures, coma and severe shocks. If not treated, it is very likely to cause permanent neurological damage. Contact an asphyxia lawyer if your little one has to face such problems. You need compensations for the potential treatments, not to mention about the trauma and pains your baby is going through.
