Answer

The use of intrapartum markers such as fetal heart rate monitoring are poor predictors of neonatal outcomes and long-term risk of cerebral palsy. [110]

Most treatments under investigation have discussed earlier and remain experimental. With the exception of therapeautic hypothermia, none has consistently shown efficacy in human infants.
