Abstract

Subgaleal hemorrhage is an uncommon but often fatal complication of a traumatic birth. Careful assessment and monitoring of the infant following birth are necessary to ensure prompt intervention, referral, and improved outcomes. Additional care, planning, and communication are especially important in the transport environment.
