Hypoxia Birth Injuries

Hypoxia is a condition caused by oxygen deprivation at the tissue level. There are two types of hypoxia:

  • General, affecting the whole body
  • Localized, affecting a single part or region of the body

When hypoxia occurs during labor or delivery and nothing is done to address the condition, birth injury may be unavoidable.
