A Study to Assess the Efficacy of Phototherapy for Neonatal Jaundice with and Without the Use of Low?Cost White Reflecting Curtain at Selected Hospitals of Indore

Ratna Tadi, Acchamma Varghese

A quasi experimental approach was adopted in this study using two group non equivalent control group design. The population of the study consisted of 40 neonates with hyperbilirubinemia and no other complications admitted in Choithram Hospital and Research Centre, Mission Hospital, Dolphin Hospital, Lifeline Hospital and Gokuldas Hospital assigned to experimental and control group 20 each. The study was intended to assess the effectiveness of phototherapy in reducing serum bilirubin level with the use of white reflecting curtains hanged on the sides of the unit for two days. The investigation was started as soon as the neonates get admitted in NICU for phototherapy with physiologic jaundice. Observation of neonate was done for two days. After introducing the intervention neonate was assessed for other parameters. The key variable was early reduction in serum bilirubin level with a self structured tool. The mean post TSB level in experimental group was 13.7 mg/dl and in control group the mean pre TSB level was 10.89 mg/dl on day 2. The t value shows that they are highly statistically significant at p 0.05. Mean absolute fall in TSB level in experimental group was 6.01 mg/dl and in control group the mean absolute fall in TSB level was 3.07 mg/dl and t (5.22) value showed that there was significant difference in post mean TSB level between experimental and control group.
