September 2019 Trial also features a medical malpractice article, “BIRTH ASPHYXIA CASES: The Impact of Cooling”. Id. at 48-52. “Therapeutic hypothermia is an increasingly common treatment when a newborn has been deprived of oxygen during the birth process. But cooling can impact brain imaging results, and children with normal imaging may still experience cognitive, memory, and behavioral issues.” Id. at 48. Birth asphyxia is also known as neonatal encephalopathy and hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (“HIE”). Id. at 49. “Though cooling may decrease the rate of cerebral palsy, babies who have been cooled are often diagnosed with other disabilities during their toddler and elementary school years.” Id. at 50.
