Phototherapy for Hyperbilirubinemia

From Medicine Journal: Dose-Response Relationship of Phototherapy for Hyperbilirubinemia

A dose-response relationship exists between light irradiance and decrease of total serum bilirubin concentration (TsB) at relatively low irradiances. It has been questioned whether by increasing irradiance a "saturation point" exists, above which no further decrease of TsB is seen.

We found a linear relation between light irradiance in the range of 20 to 55 μW/cm2/nm and decrease in TsB after 24 hours of therapy, with no evidence of a saturation point.

 Long-term Clinical Outcome After Lyme Neuroborreliosis in Childhood

Persistent facial nerve palsy is a well-described neurologic deficit after Lyme neuroborreliosis and occurs in 13% to 20% of children. Other neurologic deficits are less closely described. Nonspecific subjective symptoms are reported as often among patients as controls in previous short-term follow-up studies.

Persistent neurologic deficits, other than facial nerve palsy, were found in 14% of patients, causing impaired fine motor skills, poor balance, or persistent pain. Nonspecific subjective symptoms were reported as often among patients as controls in this long-term follow-up study and should not be considered as sequelae after Lyme neuroborreliosis.
