Every year, over 8 lakh babies die of asphyxia. Of that, 2 lakh are in India alone. Birth asphyxia occurs when a baby doesn’t receive enough oxygen before, during or just after birth. Sadly, it’s more common that one may think. Five out of 100 babies require resuscitation or artificial/device-aided breathing, without which they can either fall prey to disabilities or death. “It’s the third largest cause of newborn deaths, despite the fact that many of them can be avoided,” says Avijit Bansal, co-founder and CEO, Windmill Health.
