Improper Resuscitation of Newborn
Delivery Trauma Cases in Houston, Texas
Delivery trauma can come in many kinds. Two of the most common are the following:
- Mechanical Injuries — These involve the use of physical force, such as causing a brachial plexus injury during the labor and delivery process by pulling on the baby's arm too hard.
- Oxygen Deprivation or Anoxic Injuries — These can cause brain damage, blindness, cerebral palsy, and other serious conditions. They may result from nuchal cord injury, cord prolapse, etc.

Issues Related to Improper Resuscitation
Oxygen deprivation, meconium aspiration, and a host of other issues may require an infant to be resuscitated immediately after birth. Any delay or act of negligence by a health care provider, doctor, or nurse can cause brain damage or infant death.
Obstetricians and other health care providers may potentially be held liable for any injuries if they:
- Fail to realize that the baby needs to be resuscitated
- Fail to call in a trained neonatologist or NICU team
- Fail to correctly conduct the resuscitation of newborns
