Thompson score was 9 and met indication for cooling therapy. Cooling therapy was initiate in 6 hours after birth. BlanketrollR was used to control core temperature. Patient temperature was lowered to 33-34oC and maintained for 72 hours follow by rewarming period. During cooling therapy patient have had reactive hyperglycemia (575 mg/dL), seizure, prolong PT/aPTT/INR (43,9/109,3 seconds/5,56), low cardiac output and sepsis.
