NAS Children Suffering Brain Developmental Delays – TN Lawyers
Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome has a devastating effect on Tennessee’s children.
The most devastating way the opioid crisis affects Tennessee is in NAS children suffering brain developmental delays. NAS stands for Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome. NAS is a group of symptoms that babies born addicted to opioids suffer from.
Opioid drugs pass onto a child in the womb if a mother takes them while pregnant. She may take these drugs for pain management or due to an addiction. When born, the child is cut off from the potent opioid drugs and quickly goes into painful withdrawal or NAS.
NAS hurts children when they are first born, and long after.
The initial symptoms of NAS are many. At first, a newborn may have symptoms that include excessive crying, shaking, vomiting, sweating, or slow weight gain. They may also have blotchy skin or refuse to feed. But the danger doesn’t end for the child when they’ve made it through withdrawal.
Long-term effects of NAS include respiratory complications, language delays, and hearing disabilities. A child born with NAS might also have impaired motor skills or develop psychiatric illness.
