Infants suffering from Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy
(HIE) - a form of brain damage caused due to lack of oxygen - can be given cooling therapy to reduce their core brain temperature from a normal level of 37 degree Celsius to 36 degree Celsius - which is recognised as low enough to aid recovery, according to the study.
"We provide total body cooling -- for babies who experienced hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy
at birth -- where the infant's temperature is lowered slowly and safely to 33 degrees centigrade for three days," says Dr ElHalik.
