    76 for meter 2 The correlation between jaundice meter indices from the two meters was 87 leaving 13 of the variance in one meter not accounted for by the correlation with the other meter An examination of the differences between the two meters revealed that in the upper range greater than or equal to 16 meter 1 was always higher than meter 2 by on the average 2 6 points

    Oct 16 5 355 8 UNITED STATES Hyperbilirubinemia continues to be the major reason for hospital readmissions of neonates This is particularly true for neonates who are discharged before the 72 hour physiological jaundice occurs A small descriptive study reveals

    would be of implementing a jaundice meter for use in a busy neonatal service as an adjunctive screening tool for hyperbilirubinemia DESIGN AND METHODS Test utilization data was collected for a 6 month period to determine how neonatal bilirubin was utilized in this hospital The jaundice meter was evaluated in a study population of healthy term infants The performance characteristics of the meter and the test utilization data were used to predict the clinical impact a meter could have on screening for hyperbilirubinemia RESULTS Utilization data indicated that about 60 of all single bilirubin neonatal testing i e bilirubin only ordered was done by normal nurseries A jaundice meter cutoff decision reading of 17 was shown to have a sensitivity of 100 and a specificity of 68 for hyperbilirubinemia 260 mumol L in a study population of healthy term infants From this data it was estimated that use of a jaundice meter could eliminate 43 of the single i e not combined with other tests bilirubin tests done on healthy term neonates with no prior exposure to phototherapy This constitutes an overall 20 reduction in bilirubin testing in normal nurseries when testing done on babies exposed to phototherapy and combined

    To review the literature on transcutaneous bilirubinometry so that its exact role in the prevention of kernicterus or bilirubin encephalopathy could be determined DESIGN AND METHODS Literature searches were done in Medline and Current Contents RESULTS It is estimated that about 50 of newborns have an episode of jaundice in the first few days of life Six percent of newborns may develop hyperbilirubinemia 220 mumol L which can potentially cause bilirubin encephalopathy or kernicterus a severe neonatal disease In the past serum bilirubin SB has been the preferred method of detecting hyperbilirubinemia in newborns The ordering of SB in neonates is based on visual evaluation by either physicians or nursing staff Skin puncture collection of blood exposes the neonate to trauma and risk of infection A noninvasive device for predicting serum bilirubin levels in newborns diminishes the need to do skin punctures One such device that has been very extensively studied is the Minolta AirShields Jaundice Meter It is a portable light weight instrument that uses reflectance measurements on the skin to determine the amount of yellow color present in the skin namely transcutaneous bilirubin TcB Although the TcB measurements correlate well with serum bilirubin SB levels they cannot accurately
