Successful Outcome of Therapeutic Hypothermia in A Case of Sudden Postnatal Cardiac Arrest and Asphyxia: A Case Report and Literature Review

Therapeutic hypothermia has become the standard of care for newborns with perinatal asphyxia, for long term neuroprotection. Though, definitive literature on role of therapeutic hypothermia in out of hospital cardiac arrests in pediatric population is limited. Furthermore, little is known about the role of therapeutic hypothermia in cases of sudden unexpected postnatal cardiac arrest and asphyxia. We report a case of a Preterm infant born at 35 weeks, with cardiac arrest soon after birth that was treated successfully with therapeutic hypothermia for 72 hours.
