For newborn babies with jaundice, still, after 5 years, I run my plan of care by one of my family medicine or pediatric colleagues.
And to be honest, for good reason -- what we’re talking about is the difference between needing to go back to the hospital for phototherapy or not.
In this week's video, I’m doing the 50,000 foot view of jaundice in late-preterm and term infants in the primary care setting to help you understand how all the pieces fit together, the most important things you need to know, and my favorite tool to use to help with decision making.
Disclaimer though: like I said, I still run my plan of care by someone every time, so depending on your comfort level, tread very cautiously with these little ones.

Resources I mentioned:
Did you know the Lab Interpretation Crash Course is officially open?
It’s going to stay open from now on, AND it has continuing education credits from AANP! (you can still use those credits if you are certified through ANCC)
My favorite evidence-based, time-saving references & apps to make clinic life easier.
