Transcutaneous bilirubin nomograms in African neonates.

The use of transcutaneous bilirubin (TcB) as a screening tool, based on relevant population-specific nomogram, or proxy for total serum bilirubin (TSB) levels in assessing the risk of subsequent hyper...

Hyperbilirubinemia Influences Sleep-Wake Cycles of Term Newborns in a Non-Linear Manner.

Hyperbilirubinemia is a common cause for irreversible neuronal influence in the brain of term newborns, while the feature of neurological symptoms associated with hyperbilirubinemia has not been well ...

Reference ranges of thromboelastometry in healthy full-term and pre-term neonates.

Rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM) is an attractive method for rapid evaluation of hemostasis in neonates. Currently, no reference values exist for ROTEM assays in full-term and pre-term neonates. ...

Analysis of clinical characteristics and factors associated with short term outcomes in early term neonates.

Objective: To investigate the clinical characteristics of early term and full term neonates, and analyze the risk factors associated with short term outcomes in early term neonates. Method: Neonates w...

Case-controlled study on indirect hyperbilirubinemia in exclusively breast fed neonates and mutations of the bilirubin Uridine Diphosphate-Glucuronyl transferase gene 1A1.

This study aims to investigate the association of neonatal indirect hyperbilirubinemia in exclusively breast-fed infants with UGT1A1 (Uridine Diphosphate-Glucuronyl transferase 1A1) polymorphism.

Efficacy of Zinc in Reducing Hyperbilirubinemia Among High Risk Neonates - A Double Blind Randomized Trial

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of 10 mg of oral zinc given daily between days 2 and 7 of life to term or near term neonates with serum bilirubin levels of more than 6...

Comparison Between Effect of Conventional, Intensive and Light Emitting Diodes (LED) Phototherapy on Oxidative Stress Among Neonates With Unconjugated Hyperbilirubinemia

The aim of the present study is to test a hypothesis assuming that phototherapy might have an effect on oxidant/antioxidant status in term and late-preterm neonates with unconjugated hyper...

Efficacy of Yinzhihuang Oral Liquid on Indirect Bilirubin of Neonates With Glucose-6-phosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency

Neonatal Glucose-6-phosphate Dehydrogenase(G6PD) Deficiency is one of the significant reason for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia and even irreversible bilirubin encephalopathy.The neonates may...

Demographic, Metabolic, and Genomic Description of Neonates With Severe Hyperbilirubinemia

The purpose of this study is to compare the demographic, metabolic, and genomic characteristics of patients who develop severe hyperbilirubinemia to patients who never developed a signific...

The Risk of Hyperbilirubinemia in Term Newborns After Placental Transfusion

Delayed cord clamping (DCC) has been a subject of extensive research for the last couple of years. Based on published data, numerous neonatal benefits have been suggested such as increased...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A term used pathologically to describe BILIRUBIN staining of the BASAL GANGLIA; BRAIN STEM; and CEREBELLUM and clinically to describe a syndrome associated with HYPERBILIRUBINEMIA. Clinical features include athetosis, MUSCLE SPASTICITY or hypotonia, impaired vertical gaze, and DEAFNESS. Nonconjugated bilirubin enters the brain and acts as a neurotoxin, often in association with conditions that impair the BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER (e.g., SEPSIS). This condition occurs primarily in neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN), but may rarely occur in adults. (Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p613)

A form of gram-negative meningitis that tends to occur in neonates, in association with anatomical abnormalities (which feature communication between the meninges and cutaneous structures) or as OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS in association with IMMUNOLOGIC DEFICIENCY SYNDROMES. In premature neonates the clinical presentation may be limited to ANOREXIA; VOMITING; lethargy; or respiratory distress. Full-term infants may have as additional features FEVER; SEIZURES; and bulging of the anterior fontanelle. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, pp398-400)

Softening or loss of brain tissue following CEREBRAL INFARCTION; cerebral ischemia (see BRAIN ISCHEMIA), infection, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA, or other injury. The term is often used during gross pathologic inspection to describe blurred cortical margins and decreased consistency of brain tissue following infarction. Multicystic encephalomalacia refers to the formation of multiple cystic cavities of various sizes in the cerebral cortex of neonates and infants following injury, most notably perinatal hypoxia-ischemic events. (From Davis et al., Textbook of Neuropathology, 2nd ed, p665; J Neuropathol Exp Neurol, 1995 Mar;54(2):268-75)

A benign familial disorder, transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait. It is characterized by low-grade chronic hyperbilirubinemia with considerable daily fluctuations of the bilirubin level.

Health insurance to provide full or partial coverage for long-term home care services or for long-term nursing care provided in a residential facility such as a nursing home.
