Study Suggests Therapeutic Hypothermia May Decrease Disability in Newborns with Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy

Study Suggests Therapeutic Hypothermia May Decrease Disability in Newborns with Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy

A randomized clinical trial published in The Journal of the American Medical Association analyzed the therapeutic benefits of body cooling (hypothermia) after 6 hours of age in newborns with moderate hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy—a disorder caused by a brain injury. The study encompassed data from 21 U.S. Neonatal Research Network Centers and concluded that disability or death at 18 to 22 months occurred in 24.4% of newborns that underwent hypothermia—3.5% less than those in the group that did not undergo cooling. The study focused on therapeutic hypothermia applied between 6 and 24 hours after birth and the findings suggest benefits for term infants by reducing the risk of death or disability.
