Vacuum Extractor Injuries
Oregon and Southwestern Washington Birth Injuries Lawyers
When the baby is suffering compression because of being positioned wrong in the birth canal, doctors often turn to a vacuum extractor to turn the head and pull the body through the canal. During the extraction process many types of fetal distress injuries can occur, including:
- Skull injuries, traumatic brain injuries
- Shoulder and joint dislocation, fractures
- Facial nerve damage, peripheral nerve damage resulting in cerebral or Erb's palsy
- Scarring, muscle damage
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brain damage due to resuscitation errors
