Neonatal ECMO study of temperature (NEST): a randomized controlled trial.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Despite evidence to support the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in defined groups of newborn infants, rates of impairment among survivors remain high. Therapeutic hypothermia has been shown to provide neuroprotection in mature infants exposed to perinatal asphyxia. We hypothesized that therapeutic hypothermia during ECMO would reduce the proportion of infants with brain injury, and thus later impairment. METHODS: We conducted a randomized trial in the United King...
