Child's asphyxia from blocked ventilation tube


Our client was nine days old when he suffered asphyxia because a ventilation tube became blocked, starving him of oxygen and causing permanent brain damage.

The need for ventilation arose because the treating hospital had failed in its antenatal care to administer enough steroids to our client before his birth to prevent respiratory distress syndrome.
