J Trop Pediatr 56:172-7. 2010..76). There were no major or irreversible adverse events during cooling. This method of cooling achieved rectal temperatures within the target range of 33-34 degrees C and re-warming was effective...
- Early clinical predictors of a severely abnormal amplitude-integrated electroencephalogram at 48 hours in cooled neonatesAlan R Horn
School of Child and Adolescent Health, Department of Paediatrics, University of Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa
Acta Paediatr 102:e378-84. 2013..Our aim was to determine whether clinical assessment at age 3-5 h predicts a severely abnormal amplitude-integrated electroencephalogram at 48 h or death in cooled infants...
- Defining hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy in newborn infants: benchmarking in a South African populationAlan R Horn
Department of Paediatrics, School of Child and Adolescent Health, University of Cape Town, Capetown, South Africa
J Perinat Med 41:211-7. 2013..Our objectives were (1) to investigate how the incidence of HIE in our region varies with different criteria for intrapartum hypoxia and (2) to determine how encephalopathy severity varies with different grading systems...
