Head cooling is a therapy using hypothermia techniques to assist in preventing birth injuries after a baby experiences a lack of oxygen or blood flow to the brain during delivery. This procedure often uses a cooling cap and cooling machine to accomplish the goal of cooling the brain. Together the cooling cap and machine circulate very cold water around the baby’s scalp in order to cool the brain. This cooling technique stalls the brain cells and allows the cells to survive which increases the likelihood of long-term neurodevelopment.
