The results of randomized clinical trials indicate that the optimal management for infants with hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy is therapeutic hypothermia combined with high quality standard neonatal intensive care. In addition to therapeutic hypothermia clinical management of the infant with hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy should include the management of multiorgan dysfunction, obtaining and documenting detailed clinical information and performing appropriate investigations and assessment to confirm the diagnosis and to help direct care, and providing counseling and support to the family.
