Full Body Cooling
Babies that have gone through a difficult birth or do not get enough oxygen for some time are cooled down at our Newborn Intensive Care Unit in order to reduce any possible damage caused by the lack of oxygen. This procedure can be used in the first 6 to 12 hours for babies who have been born after 34-36 weeks of pregnancy and who do not get enough oxygen at birth. The long-term development of babies treated with this method is reported to be better.
