In brief: HIE

Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (hie) is a condition in which the brain does not receive enough oxygen.
This particular condition refers to an oxygen deficiency to the brain as a whole, rather than a part of the brain. Although the term most often refers to injury sustained by newborns, hie can be used to described any injury from low oxygen. Mechanical ventilation is often used.
