Phototherapy is the use of visible light for the treatment of hyperbilirubinemia in the newborn. This relatively common therapy lowers the serum bilirubin level by transforming bilirubin into water-soluble isomers that can be eliminated without conjugation in the liver. Phototherapy is almost (beside exchange transfusion) the unique treatment for hyperbilirubinemia of the newborn. Its efficacy to decrease bilirubin level (because the light interacts with bilirubin at the skin level to transform it in water soluble products eliminated in urine and stools without liver metabolism) relies on the irradiance dispensed at the skin level by the device (in the
Therapy of Indirect Hyperbilirubinemia • Phototherapy is an effective and safe method for reducing indirect bilirubin levels, particularly when initiated before serum bilirubin increases to levels associated with kernicterus. • In term infants, phototherapy is begun when indirect bilirubin levels are between 16 and 18 mg/dL. 1.

Phototherapy (PT) with white (day-light) or monochromatic (blue light) lamps is widely used for the prevention and treatment of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. PT has the following advantages: it is Author: Marcello Orzalesi.

Phototherapy and exchange transfusion are the mainstays of intervention for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia and current AAP phototherapy, and exchange transfusion treatment thresholds for infants greater than or equal to 35 weeks' gestation are shown in Figs. –respectively (American Academy of Pediatrics, ).
Jaundice occurs in approximately 60% of the 4 million neonates born yearly in the United States. 2 The largest data set on neonatal bilirubin levels in term or near-term infants was obtained by Bhutani and collaborators in 2, well newborns (Figure ). 3 This nomogram is reflective of the natural history of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia during the first 48 to 72 hours of life.
Phototherapy was not used in the United States until the landmark study of Lucey et al4 was pub-lished in Pediatrics a full decade later. This random-ized controlled trial demonstrating the effectiveness of phototherapy led to its acceptance as a simple, inexpensive, and relatively safe way to prevent hyperbilirubinemia in premature Size: 6MB.

Newborn jaundice can last longer than 2 weeks if your baby was born prematurely or is solely breastfed. It usually improves without treatment. But further tests may be recommended if the condition lasts this long to check for any underlying health problems. Fundamentals of phototherapy for neonatal jaundice.

For babies of 38 or more weeks of gestation, the GDG agreed through an informal consensus process that a reasonable threshold for initiation of phototherapy was micromol/litre in infants aged 96 hours or more.
The GDG believed that this was consistent with current views on the low risk associated with moderate. Phototherapy is an effective treatment for hyperbilirubinemia, but the number needed to treat varies widely depending on sex, gesta - tional age, and time since Size: KB.
Management of Neonatal Jaundice. The management of neonatal jaundice has been reviewed elsewhere, including a practice parameter developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics 47 (see Figures to ).

Phototherapy is the use of visible light for the treatment of hyperbilirubinemia in the relatively common therapy lowers the serum bilirubin level by transforming bilirubin into water-soluble isomers that can be eliminated without conjugation in the liver.
The dose of phototherapy is a key factor in how quickly it works; dose in turn is determined by the wavelength of the light.
