Fetal Heart Tracing During Delivery

California Birth Injury Lawyer

Monitoring the heartbeat of a baby during delivery is an exact science and gives an indication to doctors and nurses of how the baby is faring. Accelerations and decelerations in a baby's heartbeat are normal during the delivery process but there are signs that a medical practitioner must be aware of to see to the safe delivery of your child. Prolonged decelerations mean that the baby is suffering from a lack of oxygen.

Failure to respond quickly to such decelerations can cause your baby to suffer a birth injury. Hypoxia or asphyxia, cerebral palsy, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) and mental retardation can be the result of neglecting to trace the heartbeat of a baby during birth. Your child may need long term medical care after such birth injuries and may be deprived a full and healthy life. By retaining the services of a California birth injury attorney at Bostwick & Peterson LLP, you can learn your rights if medical malpractice caused your infant's injury.
