HIE is a leading cause of Infantile Spasms, a dangerous and emergent seizure and form of epilepsy. Left untreated or undertreated, IS can cause developmental regression and even additional brain damage.
Hope for HIE is working to further educate our community on the importance of accurate and quick identification, aggressive treatment, and follow up care to ensure our children have the best possible outcomes.
Through the Child Neurology Foundation, many resources are available for families and practitioners about Infantile Spasms.
Hope for HIE is a member of the Infantile Spasms Action Network, working collaboratively with other organizations and researchers to raise awareness for Infantile Spasms.
December 1-7: Infantile Spasms Awareness Week
