Award-Winning Michigan Birth Trauma and HIE Attorney Explains the Use of Hypothermia Treatment
HIE, also known as hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, birth asphyxia, or neonatal encephalopathy, is a dangerous brain injury that can occur when a traumatic birth restricts the flow of oxygen to a baby’s brain. Currently, the only known treatment for HIE is called hypothermia treatment. Hypothermia treatment, also known as brain cooling, can be used to limit the damaging effects that HIE can have on newborn baby. If a baby’s birth injury is not treated promptly and properly, there can be devastating, lifelong results, such as cerebral palsy.
In the following infographic, our Michigan HIE attorneys will provide a brief overview of hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy and hypothermia treatment. Should you have any questions or case inquiries, please contact the Michigan birth injury attorneys from Reiter & Walsh ABC Law Centers.
