What Is HIE?

Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy is a brain injury that occurs when a child suffers oxygen deprivation during birth. This type of condition is often the result of actions taken by doctors or lack of intervention during problems related to:

  • Preeclampsia
  • The umbilical cord

  • Delayed emergency cesarean section
  • The placenta

Doctors and nurses have a responsibility to evaluate and carefully monitor women before and during labor. Potential problems that could deprive the baby of oxygen require immediate detection, correct diagnosis and appropriate action. HIE can have devastating consequences, including seizures, brain damage, learning disabilities and more.
