Babies who need intensive care are already vulnerable, so it’s especially important that the doctors and nurses in the neonatal (newborn) intensive care unit do everything they can to prevent injury.
When a baby has been born asphyxiated from lack of oxygen, the newborn care is important to prevent further injury and reduce the harm from any injury that has already happened. Treatment tends to focus on maintaining normal blood sugar, normal blood pressure, preventing brain swelling and controlling seizures.
