Neonatal and early childhood asphyxia is a major cause of morbidity and chronic
cognitive dysfunction. In developed countries approximately births per 1000 have
asphyxia related complications including encephalopathy.

neurological consequences to the individuals afflicted, including epilepsy, cerebral palsy,

We finish with a discussion existing treatments for acute care, including
hypothermia, and the most promising pharmacological candidates for clinical use.
