Fetal development determines the baby from birth to growth. One of the abnormalities in infants that we will discuss this time is about the Symptoms of Brain Paralysis or some call it Celebral Pasty. Celebral Paty is the most common congenital condition, this disease is known as a sensitivity disorder in feeling something and doing movements out of control. Meanwhile, according to the term celebral is cerebrum or brain and palsy itself is stiffness so that people with celebral pasty can experience permanent neurological disorders and interfere with gross motoric and fine motoric brain function, even in certain conditions it will paralyze speech or other abilities.
Although the condition of Celebral Pasty occurs in 2 out of 1000 babies, it is more often found in 10 babies with preterm birth. Why did this happen? To be able to explain this condition, you must identify the causes and symptoms that are typical of celebral pasty.
Causes of Celebral Palsy
Did you know that babies born prematurely are at higher risk for celebral palsy? This is because the blood vessels to the brain are still not fully developed so that it will be easier to experience bleeding and a third of them are born at 37 weeks of gestation, while 10 percent in some cases are found to occur in babies born before gestational age at week 28.
In a study, it was explained that in babies born prematurely, celebral palsy may occur because the premature baby’s brain is still in a state of imperfections, generally it can be caused by having problems in childbirth. In 10-15 percent due to the supply of oxygen to the brain. Three out of four cases that occur in celebral palsy, one of which is due to disruption in the uterus.
Congenital organ malfunction can be a cause of celebral palsy, for example, kidney or heart. There is also a cause of brain damage during development that results in cerebral palsy, namely poisoning, lack of nutrition, shock, or caused by bacterial meningitis.
In the researchers’ observations, it was found that celebral pasly was another risk factor:
- Caused by the location of breech babies
- Low birth weight
- Twin birth
- Labor complications
- The presence of nervous system disorders
- Seizures in newborns
- Bleeding during pregnancy
- Mother suffering from hyperthyroidism
As for the signs that you can do because of motor disorders, cerebral palsy include:
- Diplegia is a condition that occurs due to the weakness of all limbs where the arms are lighter than the legs
- Quadriplegy occurs because all the limbs are experiencing the same weight
- Monoplegia, namely the movement of one limb
- Hemiplegy, which occurs because of the upper and lower limbs on one side
- Paraplegy, namely the occurrence of weakness between the legs
Thus, other symptoms that you can recognize celebral pasly include stiff muscles where there are excessive reflexes, lack of muscle coordination and such as dragging the legs when crawling and having difficulty swallowing and are symptoms of cerebral palsy.
By recognizing the cause, you can take a number of ways for suggestions that are made while maintaining your pregnancy to avoid or minimize cerebral palsy:
- Pay attention to life patterns during pregnancy. When the mother is pregnant, make sure the mother maintains a healthy lifestyle. By consuming a healthy diet, not smoking, not consuming alcohol and can be controlled in several other ways.
- Pay attention to consumption during pregnancy. By consuming vitamins and nutritional intake, make sure to vaccinate during pregnancy and avoid taking drugs if you don’t use a doctor’s prescription.
That’s the way you can do to prevent and minimize the occurrence of pregnancy disorders, one of which is celebral palsy. Also, be aware that once your baby is born, treatment of the risk of brain damage may increase the chance of cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy itself is not a specific disease but is a series of disturbances in movement so that this condition is quite varied in which the brain as a controller cannot function properly.
