Description

Objective: Changes in cerebral impedance in the newborn piglet are able to discriminate, within 1-2 h of acute hypoxia, between animals which will have a good neurological outcome, and those who have suffered more severe hypoxia resulting in poor outcome. The aim of this study was to determine if cerebral impedance could be used to identify those human infants with an encephalopathy following acute hypoxia who subsequently have a poor neurological outcome. It is these infants who may benefit...[Show more]
