Combination of Therapies

In the search for an optimal neuroprotective strategy for HIE, it is probable that a combination of treatments may prove the most beneficial. Hypothermia may be used to prolong the therapeutic window, allowing time for additional treatments to be more effective. The combination of a prenatal therapy (eg, Epogen or MgSo4) with hypothermia may also prove successful.
