- Use in otherwise healthy neonates ≥35 weeks gestational age (GA) at the time of discharge. Do not use in neonates with positive direct Coombs test, or in those requiring phototherapy before 60 hours of age. Do not use to determine need for exchange transfusion.
The recommendations listed here for starting phototherapy are based on AAP guidelines. Always use clinical judgment, in addition to considering evidence-based clinical guidelines, in making treatment decisions.
