Did medical negligence lead to Joan Rivers' death?

When patients go into to have an outpatient procedure, they are putting their life in the hands of the doctor. They are trusting that the doctor will do what needs to be done and only what was agreed upon and consented to prior to the start of the procedure. When things go wrong for any reason during an outpatient procedure, it can spell disaster for the patient. Our Kentucky readers who enjoyed Joan Rivers' comedy might find the details surrounding her death rather troubling.

The devastation of a birth injury affects the entire family

Over the past three weeks, we have discussed three serious birth injuries that can have a long-lasting impact on a baby. Those three birth injuries were meconium aspiration syndrome, fetal distress and acardiac twin syndrome. While these conditions don't automatically mean harm to a baby, without proper medical management, they can be devastating. When they aren't managed properly, parents might find themselves on an uphill battle fighting for their child.

Acardiac twins: Failure to diagnose can lead to devastation

In our previous two blog posts, we discussed how fetal distress and meconium aspiration syndrome can affect your newborn baby. While those topics might seem scary to some of our Kentucky readers, there are other issues that pregnant women might face. One of those issues is the possibility of having an undiagnosed pregnancy complication. In this post, we will discuss acardiac twins and how devastating it can be when a doctor doesn't diagnose the condition early in the pregnancy.

Can fetal distress lead to birth injuries?

In last week's blog post, we discussed meconium aspiration syndrome. As noted in that post, there are several conditions that can lead to that condition. One of those conditions is fetal distress during pregnancy; however, meconium aspiration syndrome isn't the only condition that can be caused when a fetus is distressed. Our readers in Kentucky might like to learn a little bit about fetal distress and how it affects the baby.

Birth injury profile: Meconium aspiration syndrome

A perfect, peaceful birth is the dream of most women, but that isn't the reality for all women. Some women find that their birth experience is complicated and difficult. For some women, the presence of meconium in the amniotic fluid is one event that might lead to stress. When that happens, meconium aspiration syndrome might affect the baby. In some cases, this can be considered a birth injury, especially when the presence of meconium in the amniotic fluid wasn't handled according to the acceptable methods of treatment for Kentucky doctors.
