The term jaundice, derived from the French jaune for yellow, is defined as yellow pigmentation of sclera, skin, and urine caused by hyperbilirubinemia.

The estimated occurrence of hyperbilirubinemia based on peak total serum bilirubin TSB severity has been reported as: The rate-limiting step in bilirubin production is the conversion of heme to biliverdin by heme oxygenase. 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.

Unbound free fatty acids from preterm infants treated with intralipid decouples unbound from total bilirubin potentially making phototherapy ineffective. The mechanism of action of IVIG is unknown, but it is possible that it might alter the course of immune-mediated hemolytic disease by blocking Fc receptors, thereby inhibiting hemolysis.

The goal of this study was to improve compliance with published guidelines regarding management of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia in infants admitted to a general pediatric hospital ward and to improve support for their breastfeeding mothers.

Bilirubin-induced neurologic damage — mechanisms and management approaches. The major determinants of bilirubin neurotoxicity currently in clinical use are the TSB, hyperbi,irubinemia gestational age of the neonate, and the presence of neurotoxicity risk factors.

We developed and implemented a guideline for the inpatient management of jaundiced neonates, with ongoing feedback given to the faculty on group performance.

An approach to the management of hyperbilirubinemia in the preterm infant less than 35 weeks of gestation. Clinical signs of intermediate to advanced stages of ABE are increasingly more specific to bilirubin-induced neurotoxicity and herald a marked increased risk for permanent injury.

Systematic review of intravenous immunoglobulin in haemolytic disease of the newborn. Hyperbioirubinemia latter are clinical conditions that might increase the risk for brain damage in an infant with severe hyperbilirubinemia and, as outlined in the AAP clinical practice guideline, include isoimmune hemolytic disease, glucosephosphate dehydrogenase G6PD deficiency, asphyxia, sepsis, acidosis, and albumin levels lower than 3.

Of concern, it is increasingly apparent that the diagnosis of hemolysis in neonates remains problematic and, as a result, underrecognized. Maisels MJ, Kring E. Neonatal and infant mortality in relation to phototherapy. You agree that Lexi-Comp, Inc. hyeprbilirubinemia

To determine the AAP compliance score, we reviewed and assigned points to each patient admission for completion of a standard evaluation, avoidance of unnecessary intravenous IV fluids and peripheral IV line placement, avoidance of rebound bilirubin checks while in the hospital, and the bilirubin level at discharge. A prospective randomized controlled study of phototherapy using blue and blue-green light-emitting devices, and conventional halogen-quartz phototherapy.


Advances in the clinical assessment strategies used to identify neonates at risk for the development of severe hyperbilirubinemia and bilirubin neurotoxicity, as well as the treatment measures to control hyperbilirubinemia in newborns, continue to be made.
