  • Phototherapy is the use of visible light for the treatment of hyperbilirubinemia in the newborn. This relatively common therapy lowers the serum bilirubin level by transforming bilirubin into water-soluble isomers that can be eliminated without conjugation in the liver. The dose of phototherapy largely determines how quickly it works; the dose, in turn, is determined by the wavelength of the light, the intensity of the light (irradiance), the distance between the light and the infant, and the… CONTINUE READING
