Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy


Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy
  • Perinatal asphyxia is the impairment of placental gas exchange leading to hypoxemia, hypercapnia and metabolic acidosis in the fetus. The hypoxic ischemic insult results in encephalopathy and other organ dysfunction (liver, renal etc.) some brain cells die during the hypoxic-ischemic insult (primary cell death) (Biagioni et al, 2001)
  • Birth Asphyxia is the cause of 23% neonatal deaths worldwide (Bryce, et al. 2005). Approximately 4 million babies die each year before they reach the age of one month (Costello  et al, 2001). More than a million babies who survive moderate or severe HIE but develop problems such as Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation, Learning Difficulties and other disabilities (Evans et al, 2000). Infants with mild HIE tend to be free from serious CNS complication (Gluckman et al, 2005). Neonatal Workshops
  • The aim of this workshop are to provide the health care professionals involved in the care of Babies with suspected Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) the current evidence and indicators that will help them provide the patients with the best available care.
