Jaundice (Kernicterus)

Upstate New York Excessive Newborn Jaundice Lawyers

It is normal for newborns to have jaundice. The common symptoms of jaundice include yellowish skin and eyes. Jaundice is caused by excessive levels of bilirubin in the blood. In most cases, newborn jaundice is nothing to be concerned for parents to be concerned about. In other cases, however, newborn jaundice can cause life-changing, disabling injuries. Excessive levels of bilirubin, or hyperbilirubinemia, can create a type of brain damage known as kernicterus.

There are effective treatments for excessive newborn jaundice. One such treatment is phototherapy, or light treatment. Phototherapy is known to reduce a newborn’s bilirubin levels. Upon delivery, a physician must be able to recognize signs of excessive newborn jaundice and act accordingly. The failure to do so can change the trajectory of a child’s life forever.
