Neonatal phototherapy is a common and effective treatment for neonatal jaundice, a condition in which a newborn baby has high levels of bilirubin in the blood, leading to yellowing of the skin and eyes. Here are the key points about neonatal phototherapy:

Purpose:

Treating hyperbilirubinemia: The main goal is to reduce high levels of bilirubin in the blood to prevent bilirubin encephalopathy (kernicterus), which can cause permanent brain damage.

How It Works:

Mechanism: Phototherapy uses blue light (typically in the wavelength range of 460-490 nm) to transform bilirubin into water-soluble isomers that can be excreted through urine and stool without the need for conjugation in the liver.

Types of light: Fluorescent lamps, halogen lamps, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and fibre-optic blankets can all be used for phototherapy.

Neonatal phototherapy is a widely used, non-invasive, and highly effective method for treating neonatal jaundice, significantly reducing the risk of complications associated with high bilirubin levels in new-borns.
