Jaundice is one of the most typical illnesses in newborn infants which is caused by high blood bilirubin levels. Jaundice appears in the first week of life in roughly 60% of term babies and 80% of preterm babies worldwide. Early jaundice is typically natural and safe for newborns, however, some infants might experience dangerously severe jaundice, which can be fatal if neglected. High bilirubin levels can damage the brain, which can cause neurodevelopmental problems like cerebral palsy as well as vision and hearing loss. Therefore, prompt referral and adequate treatment are crucial after diagnosing jaundice in newborns. To learn about the latest updates on the management of jaundice in newborns, join us in this session with Dr. Omesh Khurana.
