Brain injury in children and babies

Paediatric cerebrial hypoxia

A reduction in the amount of oxygen supplied to the brain affecting babies and children

What is cerebrial hypoxia?

Cerebrial hypoxia is a reduction in the amount of oxygen supplied to the brain. The most common brain injuries are from falls, assaults, or road traffic accidents. During childbirth it can be caused by a pinched umbilical cord. In premature babies it's a result of underdeveloped lungs where the baby is unable to manage breathing on their own.
