About the Book
This Care of the Jaundiced Neonate is edited by David K. Stevenson, M. Jeffrey Maisels and Jon F. Watchko. This First Edition focuses exclusively on the scientific underpinnings of jaundice, as well as the care of the jaundiced neonate. Edited by three of the field’s most respected neonatal care experts, the book uniquely explains how the imbalance between bilirubin production and elimination leads to jaundice and that hazardous levels of unconjugated bilirubin can cause kernicterus or brain damage. In addition, you’ll find the most current and clinically relevant perspectives on the physiology, genetics, and treatment of neonatal jaundice and related hemolytic conditions.
Covers all aspects of neonatal jaundice from the biochemistry of bilirubin production to kernicterus
Begins with an in-depth examination of the complex gene environment interactions of bilirubin-induced neurotoxicity and its role in neonatal jaundice
Surveys bilirubin production and measurement, its various fractions, and the metabolism and transport of bilirubin
Selected chapters highlight the physiology and epidemiology of neonatal unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia bilirubin toxicity prevention, screening, and postnatal management phototherapy and other treatments and prevention related public policy.
Concluding chapter provides an overview of the key issues surrounding the incidence of neonatal jaundice in low-middle income countries
Includes informative review of risk assessment and treatment with phototherapy and other modalities provide key approaches to the effective clinical management of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia.
