5 in 1,000 English Babies Sustain Brain Injury at Birth, Study Finds

In December 2017, researchers at Imperial College London and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust reported that approximately 5 out of every 1,000 live births in England sustain an injury to the brain. The study assessed 3,418 births between 2010 and 2015 with conditions linked to brain injuries. The research results also suggest that the brain injury rate is nearly seven times higher among premature infants compared to full-term infants. Trauma, specifically events that deprive the brain of oxygen, before, during, or after birth may lead to long-term conditions including cerebral palsy, hearing or vision loss, and learning problems. “The next step is to use routine data to understand the long-term effects of these conditions on the children and their families,” concluded Chris Gale, the study’s lead author and clinical senior lecturer at Imperial College.
