Double bilirubin lights?

January 1997
Cortlandt Forum;01/25/97, Vol. 10 Issue 1, p113
Presents studies which offer proof that the use of double lights to reduce idiopathic hyperbilirubinemia in newborns with no ABO or Rh incompatibility is better that single phototherapy.

    Our objective was to carry out a prospective, randomized, single-blind study to evaluate whether light emitting diode (LED) phototherapy using a low-cost set of lights is as effective as conventional phototherapy in treating hyperbilirubinemia in neonates. The study included 45 pre-term neonates...
