The neonatal brain - perinatal asphyxia - Dr. Ginette Ecury-Goossen - Kinderarts
Preterm infants are born in a critical period of brain development and maturation, in which the brain is extremely vulnerable. The brain of critically ill term born infants is also at risk for damage. However, brain injury in these term infants differs from that in preterm infants. In this presentation the focus will be on perinatal asphyxia and therapeutic hypothermia.
