.... Prior to initiation of phototherapy, hour-specific total serum bilirubin (TSB) percentile cut-points are lacking in these infants, which led to the current study. Methods: A multi-site retrospective cohort study of preterm infants born between January 2013 and June 2017 was completed at 3 NICUs...

... during the first 8 weeks of life, and on phototherapy and exchange transfusion treatments. Results: We obtained clinical data from 75 patients with pBE from 58 hospitals (response rate of 59%), who were born between 2002 and 2016. The average peak TB level was 12.6 mg/dL (215 μmol/L), and the average age...
