Adverse events associated with neonatal exchange transfusion for hyperbilirubinemia
Several studies have found that the late-preterm population is at risk for respiratory complications, hyperbilirubinemia
, poor feeding and hypoglycemia, temperature instability, and infection.
has been recognized as the most common cause of readmission of healthy newborns after early hospital discharge.
Higher-severity acute adverse events were uncommon and consisted of single cases of diarrhea and hyperbilirubinemia
Efficacy of phototherapy in prevention and management of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia
They address genetics, biochemistry, transport, metabolism of bilirubin, the physiology and epidemiology of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia
, public policy measures, clinical management, and interventions for the prevention and treatment of hyperbilirubinemia
and bilirubin encephalopathy in low and middle-income countries.
Q Our neonatologist is interested in screening for glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) for the evaluation of hyperbilirubinemia
A large number of admissions in the neonatal intensive care unit are due to neonatal hyperbilirubinemia
with a concern that due to immaturity of blood brain barrier these infants are at a risk of developing neonatal encephalopathy3.
However, treating mild gestational diabetes did not improve the composite primary outcome of neonatal mortality, hypoglycemia, hyperbilirubinemia
, hyperinsulinemia, and birth trauma in a multicenter, randomized trial designed to establish whether such treatment reduced perinatal and obstetric complications.
Researchers at UCSF Children's Hospital and Kaiser Permanente's Division of Research in Oakland, CA, claim that their study is the firs to examine the effectiveness of universal screening for hyperbilirubinemia
drug is expected to become the first and only pharmacologic option in the US indicated for treatment of neonates at risk for developing severe hyperbilirubinemia
, or severe jaundice.
