Can We Use a Transcutaneous Bilirubin Reading After Phototherapy?
Discussion Unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia in the newborn is a normal occurence. After birth the infant must rely on its own relatively immature liver to detoxify metabolites, the infant’s gastrointestinal tract also is not yet working as well for excretion, the infant is usually slightly fluid deficient before breastfeeding and/or bottle feeding are well established, and there is increased breakdown of red blood cells as the fetus has a higher hemoglobin than an infant and thus an infant is relatively hemoconcentrated. The total bilirubin rises from 1.5 mg/dL to 6.5 mg/dL (+ or -2.5 mg/dL) over the first 3-4 days of...
