Description

The only resource written specifically for nurses, our updated hyperbilirubinemia monograph will keep nurses upto date on the latest information related to screening for hyperbilirubinemia and the importance of optimal breastfeeding as a preventative measure.

Most newborns develop some degree of hyperbilirubinemia in the first week of life. However, some of these newborns may develop severe hyperbilirubinemia that can lead to acute bilirubin encephalopathy which may, in turn, become the chronic condition, kernicterus or even lead to death. The incidence of kernicterus, an almost preventable condition, appears to have increased in the past 10–15 years. A systematic approach that identifies newborns at risk for severe hyperbilirubinemia and ensures proper follow-up and treatment is key to preventing kernicterus.

Normal bilirubin production and elimination are covered. It educates perinatal nurses on bilirubin screening and that suboptimal breastfeeding is a risk factor for hyperbilirubinemia. The monograph also covers phototherapy and the idea that it should be given as a dosage similar to medication.

This monograph is an essential resource for nurse managers, bedside nurses, and staff educators.
