Abstract

This study supports the role of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment in the early period after neonatal GMH. HBO is an effective strategy to help protect the infant's brain from the post-hemorrhagic consequences of brain atrophy, mental retardation, and cerebral palsy. Further studies are necessary to determine the mechanistic basis of these neuroprotective effects.
