Intensive phototherapy

Our area has as a very high level of newborn jaundice, which is sometimes fatal. The treatment is phototherapy for less severe cases, exchange blood transfusion for the more serious ones. This special, intense blue phototherapy lamp (NeoBLUE) was donated by Natus Medical, Inc. with the assistance of Henk J. Vreman, Ph.D., at Stanford University Dept. of Pediatrics.

    My little sister had jaundice and had to get a blood transfusion. She was born at 29 weeks gestation.

    Yes, that's what we're trying to avoid, since the light treatment is a lot easier on everyone.
