Failure To Monitor: A Common Cause Of Birth Injuries

failure to monitorLabor and delivery is a critical time for the health of your child. The trauma of birth can lead to lifelong injuries if improperly managed. As a patient, you should be able to trust that your doctors, midwives, nurses and other care providers will uphold the highest standards. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case.

One common cause of birth injuries is failure to adequately monitor your child. During labor, fetal monitors measure vital signs of your infant. They indicate when your child is receiving insufficient oxygen or going into distress.

Proper monitoring is essential for detecting and preventing potentially life-threatening complications such as lack of oxygen, which can result in brain damage, cerebral palsy or death. Yet medical professionals sometimes fail to conduct appropriate monitoring — or fail to properly interpret the results.
