The article presents a study which examines the frequency of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy in newborn infants with seizure in Iran. It states that hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy is a brain damage due to shortage of oxygen or blood flow to the tissues and is characterized by clinical and laboratory evidence of acute or subacute brain damage due to asphyxia. It notes that the study dealt with the criteria including all neonates with seizures due to hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy asphyxia having pH below 7.

    Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) after perinatal asphyxia is a condition in which serum concentrations of brain-specific biochemical markers may be elevated. Neuro-protective interventions in asphyxiated newborns require early indicators of brain damage to initiate therapy. Our aim is to...

    Most patients who die after traumatic brain injury (TBI) show evidence of ischemic brain damage. Nevertheless, it has proven difficult to demonstrate cerebral ischemia in TBI patients. After TBI, both global and localized changes in cerebral blood flow (CBF) are observed, depending on the extent...

    Hypoxia Ischemia (HI) refers to the disruption of blood and/or oxygen delivery to the brain. Term infants suffering perinatal complications that result in decreased blood flow and/or oxygen delivery to the brain are at risk for HI.
