Implications & strategies for treating newborn brain damage

23 Sep

Seminar Overview

Of the 300,000+ babies born in Australia each year, most experience a healthy delivery. However, for some complications can arise that can have profound implications for healthy brain development. Birth asphyxia – when the brain is starved of oxygen and blood around the time of birth – is the second leading cause of infant death and the leading cause of neonatal seizures in newborn babies around the world. Despite poor brain outcomes and life-long neurological disability in survivors, relatively few therapies or diagnostic tools have reached the neonatal ICU. The implementation of hypothermia treatment for hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) has resulted in record levels of survival, however 1 in 4 babies are still at significant risk of cerebral palsy, epilepsy and motor and intellectual impairment. It is clear that additional strategies are needed for the management of (HIE) to improve outcomes for this patient population.
