Phototherapy Units, Visible Light, Hyperbilirubinemia

Definition : Phototherapy units designed to irradiate newborns with visible light with a high component in the blue (typically from 420 to 480 nm wavelength) spectrum to treat hyperbilirubinemia (i.e., jaundice). The effect of this light is to convert water insoluble bilirubin to water-soluble photoproducts that are mostly excreted into bile. Hyperbilirubinemia phototherapy units are available as overhead units that apply the radiation directly from the lamp to the newborn and as separate light sources that deliver the light to the newborn through a fiberoptic cable and a transparent pad or blanket.
