Umbilical Cord Diagnosis & Treatment Delays

The umbilical cord connects the developing baby in the womb to its mother and runs from an opening in the baby’s stomach to the placenta in the womb. Due to its nature, it is vital that there is not a delay or failure in both diagnosis and treatment to ensure the safety of the baby’s health and wellbeing. 

Types of Umbilical Cord Diagnosis & Treatment Delays

A number of abnormalities can affect the umbilical cord however, such a medical condition can be unnecessarily exacerbated where there is a delay in diagnosis or in providing treatment. Examples may include:

  • A failure or delay in diagnosis and treatment of an umbilical cord prolapse
  • Delays in the diagnosis and treatment of umbilical cord knots
  • A failure to diagnose and treat the length of the umbilical cord
  • Delays in diagnosing and in treating incorrect position of the umbilical cord
  • Errors in diagnosing and in treating a single umbilical artery
  • Delay in diagnosis and treatment of a vasa previa
  • And other umbilical cord complications

If you or a loved one has been affected by umbilical cord complications and abnormality errors which have resulted in foetal distress, lack of oxygen, exacerbation of a medical condition or death of a loved one, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
