Hi neti,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Asphyxia is a condition in which the body lacks oxygen or excess carbon dioxide due to disturbances in the respiratory tract. In infants, this condition is often caused by the following conditions:

Abnormalities in the umbilical cord, eg neck entanglement in the umbilical cord, vasa previa Uterine rupture (tear of the uterus) Preeclampsia or eclampsia Placenta previa (the placenta grows under, close to, or covers the birth canal) Oligohydramnios (low volume of amniotic fluid) Premature rupture of membranes Premature delivery Long labor, etc. Asphyxia is not directly related to smelling a strong smell, for example the smell of goats or other animals.

As a result of asphyxia, complications can occur that are temporary, but can also be permanent depending on the severity and treatment given. Some of the complications that are prone to arise due to asphyxia are cerebral palsy, epilepsy, cognitive impairment, visual impairment, and other developmental disorders.

Therefore, in order to minimize the risk of the above side effects, comprehensive treatment is needed by a pediatrician.

I hope this helps.
