Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Neonatal jaundice is the occurrence of elevated bilirubin levels in the blood. It may be physiological or pathological. If the concentration of non-conjugated bilirubin in the blood is too high, it breaches the blood brain barrier and bilirubin encephalopathy occurs with serious consequences for the child. The aim of the research was to examine the incidence frequency of unconjugated pathologic jaundice in newborns and connect it to some epidemiological variations (medical, social, demographic) as well as to prove the increased frequency of jaundice in children born by stimulation and labour induction. The study included 800 infants: 198 (24.8%) of them did, and 602 (75.2%) did not suffer from jaundice. Statistical analysis confirmed the association between the onset of jaundice in newborns and the following parameters: gestational age, birth weight, maternal infections and other illnesses during pregnancy and premature rupture of membranes as complications during labor and the mode of delivery.
