Hypovolemic and Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (Brain Damage)
This custom medical illustration shows a comparison between normal placenta brain blood flow and decreased fetal brain blood flow. An orientation image of the heart and brain within a child and an enlarged cutaway view of the watershed zone of the fetal brain demonstrate the mechanism of injury and the resulting state of ischemia and cell death in the brain. Red arrows are used to contrast oxygen-rich blood flow in the normal placenta with the decreased blood flow in the uterus caused by Nifedipine.
