SFNM NE Series: Fluid management, electrolytes imbalance and renal management in neonates with neonatal encephalopathy treated with hypothermia

Practice Points: 

  • Fluid and electrolytes management should be individualized to patients’ needs.
  • Initial fluid intake of 60–70 ml/kg/d on the first day of life may be considered for infants with NE.
  • Systemic restriction of fluids and sodium should be avoided.
  • Individualizing the approach based on daily monitoring of fluid and electrolytes at least through the cooling period should be performed.
