Lack of oxygen may affect babies' attention

Babies who experienced oxygen deprivation before birth may be at risk for attention problems.

Researchers at Kaiser Permanente reviewed the health records of nearly 82,000 children.

There was also a link found among those whose mothers had extremely high blood pressure while pregnant.
