Paper Abstract

Progress in phototherapeutic systems for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia based on better understanding of bilirubin photochemistry and metabolism, improved optical models of skin, and new fiberoptic delivery systems is reported. The very efficient use of a new blue-green phototherapy fluorescent lamp is reported for the first time.
