    Jaundice research

    While neonatal jaundice – or hyperbilirubinemia – occurs in almost all babies, it is a cause of concern for caregivers and anxiety for families. We have identified major topics within jaundice management then grouped the research studies into categories in one easy reference for you to use.


    We have compiled studies that are referenced in multiple powerpoints and webinars into one template to make it easier to find the reference you are looking for.

    The numbers next to each category are linked to the article information. For example, there are 6 studies within the tool that reference the first category “Accuracy”.

    Each section includes short information on the research conducted: objective, result and conclusions plus a link to read more or purchase the full study.

    – Accuracy – Pre-term infants – BiliCheck vs JM-103 – Outpatient Setting – Implementation – Reducing Readmission – Multi-racial population – Cost effectiveness – Reducing blood tests

    – Accuracy – Pre-term infants – BiliCheck vs JM-103 – Outpatient Setting – Multi-racial population – Cost effectiveness – Reducing blood tests

    Transcutaneous bilirubin levels in an outpatient and office population The use of TcB measurements has been studied extensively in the newborn population, but there have been few studies in outpatient populations and none from the offices of practicing pediatricians. http://www.nature.com/jp/journal/v31/n9/abs/jp20115a.html
