Abstract

The American Heart Association, the European Resuscitation and the International Liaison Committee issued new neonatal resuscitation guidelines (2010) where therapeutic hypothermia is introduced after hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy (HIE) in term infants to prevent brain injury. Our study aimed to investigate whether hypothermia can reduce the release of a cardiac cellular marker, cardiac troponin I (cTnI), in HIE infants compared to normothermia care, if cTnI can be used as a prognostic marker for long term neuro-developmental outcome and if cardiac compression at birth affects the level of cTnI.
