Pitocin was administered to induce pregnancy. Mom suffered a severe blood pressure increase during labor. Pitocin was used despite tachysystole and decelerations. Vacuum-assisted delivery was performed, and the baby was born severely depressed. Pitocin should have been discontinued and doctors should have delivered the baby hours earlier due to the arrest of labor and the presence of repetitive late decelerations which are indicative of uteroplacental insufficiency (too little oxygen and blood flow to the baby). Despite suffering from hypoxic ischemia and seizures, the baby did not receive therapeutic head cooling resulting in permanent brain damage.
