Abstract

Neonatal hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy (HIE), if severe, may involve cerebral vasoparalysis. In HIE, Pourcelot’s cerebral vascular resistance index (RI) below 0.55 (by Doppler ultrasound) from published literature at normothermia predicted poor outcome with a positive predictive value (PPV) of 84%. The aim of this study was to re-assess RI as a predictor of outcome in HIE during hypothermia.
