Hypoxicischemic brain injury and hypoxicischemic encephalopathy (HIE) remain a serious problem for both preterm and term neonates with the spectrum of injury ranging from neuronal injury to encephalopathy and death. Neonatal encephalopathy due to such injury occurs in 39 of every 1000 term infants. Of these, it is estimated that nearly a third to a half will either have severe adverse outcomes or die. Treatment of infants with HIE remains generally supportive with attention to resuscitation, fluid and electrolyte homeostasis, maintenance of acid-base balance, nutrition and feeding issues and treatment of seizures.
