Babies with potential risks for brain injury will be attended to at birth by our specialists. If the need arise, these babies will be resuscitated immediately after birth, then transferred to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for monitoring and supportive care.
In the NICU, we have a device capable of continuously monitoring brain wave patterns to determine the severity of brain injury and presence of seizures. Special imaging with MRI is available to delineate the extent of the brain injury.
Treatment with body cooling is available. This mode of treatment has been proven to reduce the effect of brain injury in severely affected infants.
Follow up on growth and neurological development can be done by our specialists after the babies' discharge from hospital.
