Phototherapy Equipment Greenwood SCJaundice is the condition characterized by yellowness of skin, whites of eyes, mucous membranes, and body fluids due to deposition of bile pigment resulting from excess bilirubin in the blood (hyperbiliruinemia).

Some “normal” jaundice will disappear within a week or two without treatment.  Other babies will require treatment because of the severity of the jaundice, the cause of the jaundice, or how old the baby is when jaundice appears.

Phototherapy (light treatment) is the process of using light to eliminate bilirubin in the blood.  Your baby’s skin and blood absorb these light waves and change bilirubin into products which can pass through their system.

For over 30 years, phototherapy treatment in the hospital has been provided by a row of lights or a spotlight suspended at a distance from the baby.  This would provide light shinning directly on an undressed baby (with diaper on) whose eyes would need protection from the light with soft eye patches applied.  Today, advancements in technology have led to a new phototherapy system which gives effective treatment without the inconveniences of conventional phototherapy treatment.

Infant Phototherapy Greenwood SCAre there side effects to using Phototherapy?

Babies under any type of phototherapy treatment will have frequent and loose bowel movements that are sometimes greenish in color.  This is normal since this is the way body removes the bilirubin.  This will be temporary and should stop when treatment is completed.  Contact your doctor if it persists after treatment is completed.
