Conformité des pratiques de l'hypothermie aux recommandations : étude multicentrique chez le nouveau-né à terme

Abstract : AIM : The objective of this study was to describe the French practice of hypothermia treatment (HT) in fullterm newborns with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) and to analyze the deviations from the guidelines of the French Society of Neonatology. MATERIAL AND METHOD : From May 2010 to March 2012 we included all cases of HIE treated by HT entered in a declarative French national database of HIE. The population was divided into two groups, "optimal hypothermia" (OHT) and "sub-optimal hypothermia" (SOHT), according to whether the guidelines were fully followed or not. RESULTS : Of the 311 newborns registered in the database and having hypothermia treatment, 65% were classified in the OHT group and 35% in the SOHT group. In the SOHT group, 62% of newborns (n = 68) started HT at over 6h and 38% (n = 27) had insufficient criteria for implementing HT. In the whole population, 46% of newborns had no electrophysiological examination before starting HT. Nevertheless in the SOHT group, severe acidosis, resuscitation at birth and neonatal complications of HIE were less frequent. CONCLUSION : This first report illustrates the difficulties in implementing guidelines for HT and should lead to an optimization of perinatal care for HIE.
