Thakkar D, Verma A, Kar S, Brookman S, Catalano C, Hill J, Wells L, Radomska M


Phototherapy is a well-established procedure and the mainstay of treatment for significant neonatal jaundice. Usually, phototherapy is delivered in hospital, typically requiring a hospital stay of a few days. This article describes a pilot project to introduce phototherapy for the management of neonatal jaundice in clinically stable preterm and term infants with haemolytic disease of the newborn using a phototherapy blanket at home.
