Our understanding of pathophysiology of hypoxic-ischemic brain damage in preterm infants remains very limited. We studied the amplitudes of brainstem auditory evoked response, recorded with 91-910/s clicks, at term in preterm infants after perinatal HI for functional status of the auditory brainstem. Compared with age-matched healthy preterm infants, the preterm infants after HI did not show any major abnormality in waves I and III amplitudes at any click rates. However, wave V amplitude was… CONTINUE READING
