Causes and complications of newborn jaundice

Some Texas mothers give birth to babies who develop jaundice. For many infants, jaundice is normal and is not serious. It usually will go away on its own in a week or two although it may require careful monitoring. Usually, jaundice is just a sign that the child's liver has not quite started to work at full capacity yet. However, there are also circumstances in which jaundice may happen for other reasons and in which it can become very serious.

Why complications happen during a delivery

Typically, a baby born in Texas is delivered without any major complications. However, there are times when a medical professional may need to intervene to ensure that delivery can be completed successfully. Intervention may be needed if the baby is larger than average, or there are issues with the umbilical cord. It may also be needed if the birth occurs too early.

What to know about Horner's Syndrome

About 1.42 people per 100,000 under the age of 19 will experience Horner's Syndrome. It impacts the nerve pathway between the brain and the side of the face that is impacted by it. Of those who have Horner's Syndrome in Texas and throughout America, about 1 in 6,250 will develop the condition at birth. There are many different signs that a person has this condition. For instance, the pupils in each eye may be a different size.

The threat of neonatal strokes

Expectant parents in Texas should be aware that newborn infants and elderly people have the same likelihood of having a stroke. Parents-to-be should know about the frequency of neonatal strokes, the causes of the condition and what symptoms to be aware of.
