Perinatal Asphyxia

Perinatal asphyxia is a condition where the fetus fails to initiate or sustain breathing at birth due to an inadequate supply of oxygen. It can happen before, during or after birth. In some cases, it can also lead to cerebral palsy, epilepsy or other disabilities. Before birth, it will indicate signs such as low heart rate and high pH levels during fetal heart monitoring and at birth, an APGAR score of 0-3 for more than 5 minutes is indicative of perinatal asphyxia.
