Children's Researchers Focus on Biomarkers to Treat Neonatal Brain Injury

To improve treatments of babies with perinatal hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), a major cause of brain injury in newborns, Children’s National Health System researchers have focused on a physiological biomarker, Heart Rate Variability (HRV), which can help better predict neurological outcomes, including whether different cooling patterns can improve care.
