Hypothermic treatment after birth asphyxia was introduced as a recommended practice in Sweden in 2007. CPUP is a national quality register and surveillance program that encompasses the total population of children with cerebral palsy (CP) in Sweden. In an analysis of CPUP data children with CP and asphyxia treated with cooling were compared to children with CP and asphyxia who were not cooled. A lower proportion of severe motor and cognitive impairments were observed in the group that did receive the cooling/hypothermic treatment.
