Brain cooling has been acknowledged as an effective treatment for babies born with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), which occurs when the child is asphyxiated during birth due to shoulder dystocia or other labor & delivery problems. The brain cannot survive long without an abundant supply of oxygen, and will quickly sustain damage if the condition is not immediately treated. Doctors must diagnose HIE and begin treatment within 6 hours, to prevent permanent health complications such as mental retardation or cerebral palsy.

Failure to Use Brain Cooling and Birth Injuries

The theory behind brain cooling is simple. By decreasing the cranial temperature, doctors hope to slow down the rate of the chemical reactions which cause brain damage. It is done through use of either a water cooled cap or an insulated blanket filled with a cooled fluid, and treatment lasts for approximately 3 days. If you believe that your doctor failed to diagnose HIE or was negligent in initiating brain cooling treatment, you may be able to recover compensation for the effects of the injury.
