Jaundice is a common, temporary, and usually harmless condition in newborn infants. It affects both full-term and premature babies, usually appearing during the first week of the baby's life. Jaundice occurs when there is a build-up of a naturally occurring substance in the blood called bilirubin. Typically this will cause the baby to have a yellow tint to its eyes and skin. If the baby is otherwise healthy, home photo-therapy is frequently prescribed to treat it. The product used in photo-therapy is called a Bili-light or Bili-blanket.

Our bili-blanket is a covered fiber-optic pad, placed directly against the baby to bathe the skin in light. The baby's skin and blood absorb these light waves, and the absorption of this light leads to the elimination of the bilirubin. Our bili-blanket provides the highest level of therapeutic light available to treat the baby and contains the form of light also found in sunlight. The strength of light from the bili-blanket is about the same as you would get in the shade on a sunny day, yet it is safer because the bili-blanket filters out potentially harmful ultraviolet and infrared energy.

With this convenient form of photo-therapy, your child can be diapered, clothed, held, and nursed during treatment. Although not a respiratory condition, our licensed Respiratory Therapists, being clinically trained professionals, deliver and set up bili-lights to aid our precious baby patients.
