Another malpractice case where a C-section was done too early. “The lawsuit alleges Gulick developed lung disease because doctors performed a Cesarean section delivery too early.

Doctors then administered anesthesia to the infant in preparation for surgery to repair an unrelated abdominal defect. The anesthesia exacerbated the child’s breathing difficulties, and ultimately led to his death, according to the lawsuit.

The plaintiffs claim recommended tests to check the baby’s lung maturity before the C-section were not performed, and that surgery — and thus the anesthesia — could have been deferred safely until his lung condition improved.”
