Hyperbilirubinemia, also referred to as neonatal jaundice, is a common condition affecting approximately 60% of full-term, and 80% of pre-term babies in their first week of life. Most of the time, the condition will resolve on its own, but in a small number of cases it can lead to a serious condition called kernicterus. This is a largely preventable disorder, as long as babies are properly monitored and treated. At Monarch, we are uniquely able to do bilirubin screening outside of the hospital environment. In cases where jaundice levels are high, we can monitor your baby closely, and, if necessary, seamlessly transition you and your baby back to the hospital for further assessment and treatment.
