The onset of seizures after birth has been considered evidence of an intrapartum asphyxial event. The present study was undertaken to determine whether the timing of neonatal seizures after birth correlated with the timing of a fetal asphyxial event. Thus, singleton term infants diagnosed with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy and permanent brain injury had a mean birth to seizure onset interval of 9.8 +/- 17.7 (range 1-90) hours. When these infants were categorized according to their fetal heart… CONTINUE READING
