OBJECTIVE To assess the safety of selective head cooling in birth-asphyxiated term newborn infants while maintaining the rectal temperature at 35.0 degrees C or 34.5 degrees C. METHODS Twenty-six term infants with Apgar <or=6 at 5 minutes or cord/first arterial pH <7.1, plus evidence of encephalopathy, were studied. After parental consent had been obtained, 13 infants received selective head cooling with the rectal temperature maintained at 35.0 degrees C in 6 infants and at 34.5 degrees C in… CONTINUE READING
