Anoxia — a total lack of oxygen — and hypoxia — a partial lack of oxygen — during childbirth can lead to a broad range of serious consequences, including brain damage, neonatal encephalopathy and cerebral palsy. The lack of oxygen during delivery is avoidable when physicians recognize the signs and act quickly to remedy the situation. When they fail to do so, it can be considered medical malpractice.
