Severe Hyperbilirubinemia Prevention

Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia is a frequent and generally benign condition for which safe and effective treatments exist. When hyperbilirubinemia goes untested or unmonitored, otherwise healthy newborns are at risk for bilirubin neurotoxicity. The Severe Hyperbilirubinemia Prevention Toolkit reviews guidelines for the identification and follow-up of term and near-term infants (greater than 35 weeks gestation) at risk for hyperbilirubinemia.
