The aim of this book is to transmit the message that asphyxia is the major cause of infant mortality in the ne­ asphyxia-if severe, caus­ onatal period. The sequelae of ing cerebral palsy; if mild, leading to MBD to seizures­ are all potential risks. It is important to make young physicians and nurses aware of this complication of the birth period, how to avoid it, and how to treat it. Facilitating such awareness is the chief purpose of this book. Alberto Lacoius-Petruccelli New York 7 Contents 1.
