In a study involving 325 babies with asphyxial encephalopathy, U.K. researchers found that those treated with moderate hypothermia were more likely to have an IQ score of 85 or more at ages 6 or 7. The hypothermia group also had lower risks for cerebral palsy and moderate or severe disability. The findings appear in the New England Journal of Medicine.
