  1. Suggested research

    Interesting paper. I just cared for a child with hypothermia at my own neonatal department this night (nighttime in Sweden).

    It would be very interesting if the authors could follow a cohort of hypothermic children with regards to later morbidity taking birth weight and gestational age into consideration.

    Best regards,

  2. Response to Dr. Ludvigsson

    Dr. Ludvigsson, thanks for your comment on our article. Your suggestion to follow a cohort of babies with and without hypothermia for subsequent outcomes is a good one. We have recently examined hypothermia in relation to subsequent risk of mortality - see our recent paper published in July 2010 issue of APAM for more details.
