Hyperbilirubinema is Treated Using L.E.D Phototherapy for Neonatals
S.Vaishnodevi | Sajith S. Nair
Abstract: Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia or Neonatal jaundice is a yellowing of skin and other tissues of a newborn infant. Neonatal phototherapy is widely used and accepted form of treatment form of treatment for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. Effective phototherapy needs to satisfy three important criteria valuable spectrum, suitably high irradiance, and large efficient treatment area. In conventional method, different types of light sources are used, such as fluorescent lamps, quartz halogen lamps, gas discharge tubes etc. In this proposed method, we are using LEDs are light source. These LEDs are providing all the criteria for effective phototherapy. Comparing with the other conventional methods, this method will give a faster response for the breakdown of bilirubin. In this project, it is to create a LED phototherapy circuit unit having high competence, low thermal emission, and for extended term usage than other phototherapy methods.
