Rise and Fall of Therapeutic Hypothermia in Low-Resource Settings: Lessons from the HELIX Trial
The standard care for neonatal encephalopathy in LMIC should remain normothermia, with close attention to prevention of hyperthermia, and there is no role for therapeutic hypothermia in LM IC as the efficacy ofHypothermia is dependent on the population, and not merely on the level of neonatal intensive care facilities.
