Therapeutic Hypothermia Now Standard Treatment for Some Birth Injuries

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Medical Malpractice Attorney. Hypothermia – the mere mention of the word may bring to mind images of freezing climates, frostbitten fingers, and deadly-low body temperatures. Indeed, most individuals grow up fearing hypothermia for the many life-threatening dangers it can present. When a person’s body temperature dips below normal (the very definition of hypothermia), medical professionals tell us that it is important to bring the temperature back up to normal or else the person risks serious, even fatal injuries. Because this is the understanding most people have of hypothermia, it may come as a surprise that hypothermia can be considered “therapeutic” in the case of some newborn infants who have suffered birth-related injuries.
