Intrauterine hypoxia or IH is caused as a result of the fetus being deprived of a supply of oxygen immediately prior to, during or just after the mother gives birth. IH may be due to a variety of reasons such as cord prolapse, cord occlusion, placental infarction and maternal smoking. Intrauterine growth restriction may cause or be the result of hypoxia. Birth asphyxia may result due to prolonged labor, breech delivery. Oxygen deprivation is the most common cause of perinatal brain injury. Intrauterine hypoxia can cause hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy which is cellular damage that occurs within the brain and spinal cord from. This damage can also cause an increased risk of Sudden infant death syndrome. Oxygen deprivation in the fetus can result in disorders such as epilepsy, ADHD, eating disorders and cerebral palsy witch will affect the child throughout their life.
