UK finds cooling reduces baby brain damage

New study reveals that cooling babies who have been starved of oxygen at birth can significantly reduce brain damage.

    A new study in the UK has revealed that cooling babies who have suffered a traumatic lack of oxygen during birth can reduce brain damage.

    The findings show that inducing hypothermia stops brain cells dying and that the benefits last all through a child’s development.
