HIE Calculator (Cool Tool)

The HIE Calculator is intended to promote the identification and early referral of babies at risk for hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). It does not determine if a baby should be cooled. The decision to proceed with cooling should only be made after consultation with a Regional Cooling Center (CCS numbered letter), based upon their institutional criteria.

These recommendations are based on CPQCC’s Early Screening and Identification of Candidates for Neonatal Therapeutic Hypothermia Toolkit.
