Message length 300 characters recommended

Asphyxia means lack of oxygen. Birth asphyxia happens when a baby's brain and other organs do not get enough oxygen before, during or right after birth. This can happen without anyone knowing. Without oxygen, cells cannot work properly. Waste products (acids) build up in the cells and cause temporary or permanent damage.

There are two treatments for asphyxia:

hypothermic therapy, which produces a small deliberate drop in the baby’s temperature;

support, by encouraging improved oxygen delivery and blood circulation
