Objective:Multiorgan dysfunction in asphyxiated newborns receiving therapeutic hypothermia achieved by either selective head cooling (SHC) or whole-body cooling (WBC) has not been well characterized. The beneficial effect of SHC in organs other than the brain may potentially be limited because unlike WBC, SHC aims to achieve effective brain cooling with less-systemic hypothermia. However, the relative effects of SHC and WBC with currently available cooling protocols on multiorgan dysfunction… CONTINUE READING
