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

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.
