CR, CD e FR conceived this study as Task Force for hyperbilirubinaemia of Italian Society of Neonatology. EZ, SP and LC revised literature and collected data from Italian studies. CR, GB and EZ conducted the study on transcutaneous bilirubin and serum bilirubin as predictors of severe hyperbilirubinaemia. GB and CR prepared the draft of the paper. CD, FR and SP made critical revision of the article. All authors read and approved the final manuscript.
Hyperbilirubinaemia is one of the most frequent problems in otherwise healthy newborn infants. Early discharge of the healthy newborn infants, particularly those in whom breastfeeding is not fully established, may be associated with delayed diagnosis of significant hyperbilirubinaemia that has the potential for causing severe neurological impairments. We present the shared Italian guidelines for management and treatment of jaundice established by the Task Force on hyperbilirubinaemia of the Italian Society of Neonatology.
The overall aim of the present guidelines is to provide an useful tool for neonatologists and family paediatricians for managing hyperbilirubinaemia.
