Abstract

Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in preterm and full-term infants. Experimental data from animal studies suggest that interventions that improve survival of injured neurons and prevent delayed neuronal loss may decrease hypoxic ischemic brain injury. Considerable attention has focused on optimizing management of newborns in the period immediately after resuscitation from perinatal asphyxia to minimize delayed neuronal death. The evidence regarding the role of glucose in modifying post-asphyxia brain injury and resuscitation was reviewed to better define optimal glucose management after perinatal asphyxia and resuscitation.
