Neurodevelopmental outcome in neonates with hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy managed with therapeutic hypothermia in a tertiary-level public hospital outside an intensive care unit setting

More studies are needed to confirm these findings.ABBREVIATIONS: aEEG: amplitude electroencephalogram; CP: cerebral palsy; GMDS: Griffiths mental developmental scales; GQ: general quotient; HIC: high-income countries; HIE: hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy; LMIC: low- and middle-income countries; LTFU: loss to follow-up; NICU: neonatal intensive care unit; TH: therapeutic hypothermia; TOBY: total body hypothermia.PMID:34493152 | DOI:10.1080/20469047.2021.1967625
