Assessing Jaundice in Newborns – BiliTool

Posted by medliorator on July 5, 2009

BitiTool assesses the risk of hyperbilirubinemia in newborns and provides American Academy of Pediatrics’ phototherapy recommendation.  Available online and for iPhone.

BiliTool is designed to help clinicians assess the risks toward the development of hyperbilirubinemia or “jaundice” in newborns.

Required values include the age of the child in hours (between 18-168 hours) and the total bilirubin in either US (mg/dl) or SI (µmol/L) units.
