Hypoxic Birth Injury Claim Case Study

Child D sustained a hypoxic birth injury as a result of a failure by the treating staff at the hospital to correctly interpret the CTG trace (which is used to monitor a child’s heart rate during labour).

An inappropriate diagnosis of a reassuring CTG trace resulted in a delay in delivery and a consequential injury to child D’s brain due to oxygen starvation.

Child D suffered from seizures immediately after his birth and continues to experience significant problems with muscle control and spasticity.

Child D remains under medical review.  The case against the NHS Hospital Trust is ongoing.
