Course Overview

Hyperbilirubinemia in Pediatrics

Author: Ashley Walker

Jaundice is a common clinical sign of hyperbilirubinemia in pediatrics, specifically newborns. Because hyperbilirubinemia of the newborn is so common, it is important for nurses to familiarize themselves with the physiology and the vital role nurses have in managing this condition. This course will review the pathophysiology and various types of hyperbilirubinemia in pediatrics, risk factors, screening, treatment, complications, and, most importantly, the nurses’ role in providing care to patients with the disorder.
