The Lexi-Comp Content is intended to serve the user as a rapidly accessible, concise initial reference resource and not as a complete reference resource. Rehospitalisation after birth hospitalisation: The estimated occurrence of hyperbilirubinemia based on peak total serum bilirubin TSB severity has been reported as: Epub ahead of print. The AAP is a Section c 3not-for-profit corporation, and as such, does not participate in any political activities.

Figure 2 American academy of pediatrics phototherapy guidelines. The benefit of timely phototherapy application in infants who show marked, potentially hazardous hyperbilirubinemia is clear and highlighted by the work of Mreihil et al, who report that configurational photoisomerization of bilirubin occurs almost instantaneously and is detectable in appreciable amounts in the blood of newborns within 15 minutes of initiating intensive phototherapy.

Given the urgency of an exchange transfusion in an infant with intermediate to advanced stages of ABE, it has been suggested that emergency release uncross-matched blood be used. Influence of clinical status on the association between plasma total and unbound bilirubin and death or adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes in extremely low birth weight infants.


Maisels MJ, Kring E. Length of stay, jaundice, and hospital readmission. Updates available for this chapter. Two recent randomized controlled trials, however, showed no benefit from the administration of IVIG to newborns with Rh hemolytic disease, 8485 and a Cochrane meta-analysis 86 concluded that the efficacy of IVIG was not conclusive in Rh or ABO hemolytic disease of the newborn. Because of the reported increase in mortality in infants with birth weights — g, it has been recommended that phototherapy be initiated at lower irradiance levels in extremely low birth weight neonates and that these levels are only increased, or the surface area of the infant exposed to phototherapy is increased, if the TSB continues to rise.

Indeed, preliminary observations suggest this numeric approach may be quite reliable in characterizing the severity of ABE 3335 and may prove helpful in managing infants with hazardous hyperbilirubinemia. Phototherapy for neonatal jaundice.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev. Bilirubin-induced neurotoxicity depends on a complex interaction between the level and duration of CNS Bf exposure and the innate cellular characteristics of the developing CNS that may predispose or protect against bilirubin-induced neuronal injury.

Decline in serum bilirubin concentration coincident with clinical onset of kernicterus. Risk factors for neurotoxicity in newborns with severe neonatal hyperbilirubinemia.

Scores of 7—9 represent advanced acute bilirubin encephalopathy; urgent, prompt, and individualized intervention are recommended to prevent further brain damage, minimize severity of sequelae, and possibly reverse acute damage.

This Agreement and any attachments represent the entire agreement between the parties and supersede any previous contemporaneous oral or written agreements, commitments, representations or communications regarding the subject matter of this Agreement. Routine transcutaneous bilirubin measurements combined with clinical risk factors improve the prediction of subsequent hyperbilirubinemia.

A subset of infants, however, will develop more significant hyperbilirubinemia.
