What is the risk of neonatal bilirubin to newborns?
Hyperbilirubinemia is one of the most common problems encountered in term newborns. Up to 60% of term newborns have clinical jaundice in the first week of life. Excessive bilirubin damages developing brain cells in infants (kernicterus) and may cause mental retardation, learning and developmental disabilities, hearing loss, or eye movement problems. It is important that bilirubin levels in newborns not get too high. When the level of bilirubin is above a critical threshold, special treatments are initiated to lower it.
