Phototherapy Systems

Phototherapy Systems are used to treat neonatal jaundice (hyperbilirubinemia). Jaundice is caused by high levels of bilirubin (yellow pigment which circulates in the blood stream). Phototherapy uses a blue or white light that breaks down bilirubin into a form that is harmless.

A one-piece cabinet containing special fluorescent light bulbs to treat hyperbilirubinemia (jaundice) in newborns. The baby is placed in the cabinet with eye protection while the light breaks down bilirubin. Jaundice is a yellow coloring of the skin and eyes related to abnormal liver function.

A blanket or wrap with a built-in light source that allows the baby to be held by a parent or other caregiver during treatment.
