TOBY Children Study - School age outcomes following a newborn cooling trial

The aim of this study is to determine the effects of therapeutic hypothermia following perinatal asphyxia on neurological and neuropsychological outcomes at age 6-7 years and also to assess academic attainment and any additional health, societal or educational costs associated with changes in outcome as a result of the intervention. This study will determine whether the apparent initial benefits of cooling are maintained in the longer term.
