hello,
hypoxia can be due to inability to breath. It can be due to lack of surfactant to difficulty in breathing. It can also be due to ischemia at birth. Hypoglycemia can be due to various reasons like high insulin etc. Since it was on the third day it is a late reaction and hence considerably harmless. I would advise you to consult a pediatrician in this regard and get a complete work up. Continue regular immunisation as per pediatric prescription. I hope i have answered your query. Take care
