Birth Asphyxia complications impact a very large number of Newborns every year resulting in high Morbidity & Mortality. Over 7 million Newborns are affected every year globally. Currently there is no effective means to diagnose the severity of Asphyxia to enable initiation of early treatment. This delay in diagnosis results in grievous damage to the Newborn's brain resulting in death or long term neurological sequelae like Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation, Learning disabilities etc.
