Medical Malpractice Causing Hypoxia
Hypoxia is a condition in which the body or a certain part of the body is deprived of oxygen. Hypoxia can result in permanent brain damage. Doctors and hospital staff are required to take adequate precautions to prevent hypoxia.
Examples of medical negligence that may cause hypoxia include:
- Failure to diagnose and treat a serious medical condition
- Failure to properly treat a patient for a heart attack
- Failure to timely diagnose and treat a stroke
- Failure to properly treat a patient with cranial bleeding
- Failure to recognize preeclampsia in pregnancy
- Failure to prevent fetal hypoxia
- Failure to properly treat a patient with hypertension
Since there are so many ways that hypoxia can occur, the best way to determine if medical negligence may have played a role in a hypoxia injury is to contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney.
