This study describes and evaluates a simple method of neuroprotective hypothermia for infants with hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy (HIE). Five term infants with HIE were cooled by applying soft, cold gel bags to the head. A radiant warmer, set to 34 degrees C, servo-controlled the temperature measured at a probe between the infant's back and the mattress. The infants' heads were shielded from the warmer. After 72 h, the infants were re-warmed by 0.2 degrees C per hour, by adjusting the radiant… CONTINUE READING
