Cord Blood Albumin as A Predictor of Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia: A Prospective Open Label Study
Cord Blood Albumin as A Predictor of Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia: A Prospective, Open Label Study
Introduction: Neonatal jaundice is commonest physical finding during first week of life. Over 2/3 of full term newborn develop the neonatal hyperbilirubinemia (NH). Serum bilirubin over >15% is found in 3% of normal term neonates1. In significant number of babies (6.5%) are develop neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. It’s most common cause of readmission of babies during early neonatal period. Method: This prospective study was conducted in Gopnath maternity home and neonatal intensive care unit of Sir T General Hospital, Bhavnagar. [Hardik C NJIRM 2017; 8(5):41-43]
