About Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Head Cooling

In 2007, ACH's neonatologists were the first in the world to treat an infant with FDA-approved head cooling technology. The ACH Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is one of the original NICUs in the country to offer head cooling for babies with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE).

In the ACH NICU, you will discover a one-of-a-kind team experience led by Dr. Jeffrey R. Kaiser, MD, MA a neonatologist and the Arkansas principal investigator for the Selective Head Cooling for the Treatment of Perinatal Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy study.

"Without head cooling, many infants with moderate to severe HIE would die or have poor neurological outcomes, such as cerebral palsy, deafness, blindness or learning disabilities."
