Effect of Phototherapy on Serum Calcium Levels in Newborn

Malavath Premika

Abstract: Jaundice is an essential problem in the newborn period. Increased bilirubin levels may be hazardous to the developing central nervous system and may cause irreversible neurological impairment even in term newborns. Nearly 60% of term newborns and 80% of preterm?s become visibly icteric in the first week of life. In the majority of cases, it is usually benign, and no intervention is required. Approximately 5 - 10% of them have clinically significant hyper - bilirubinemia, in whom the use of phototherapy becomes mandatory.
