Newborn Intensive Care Unit

Predominantly used to cool down the whole body of babies who are deprived of oxygen in the womb or babies who have the risk of dying or being mentally or physically disabled, the only Therapeutic Hypothermia Device in our country is available at the Near East University Hospital Newborn Intensive Care Unit.

Used around the world, the Therapeutic Hypothermia device, which is used to heal babies that have been deprived of oxygen in the womb or during birth, is available in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at Near East University Hospital.

The bodies of oxygen-starved babies are cooled down to 33.5 degrees and the oxygen levels as well as electrical activities are monitored by the newborn and child neurology teams using Therapeutic Hypothermia device. This process of cooling down primarily reduces the brain and metabolism functions as well as energy and prevents the brain from retaining water, thus reducing nerve cell death.

Babies at risk of death, or mental or physical disability have an increased chance of being healed and the risk of them having a disability is lowered if the treatment is started within the first 6 hours.
