In low resource settings, where the majority of asphyxial deaths occur, the mandatory measuring of core temperature may not always be practical when practicing therapeutic hypothermia (TH). If a standardized measurement of skin temperature could replace core temperature monitoring, it would make cooling more feasible. In normothermic newborn, axillary temperature measurements are the standard of care (1). © 2012 The Author(s)/Acta Paediatrica © 2012 Foundation Acta Paediatrica.
