NICE Bilirubin charts in mg/dl?

Hi!

I suppose it is, because a rising bilirubin in the first 48h hours is most probably due to rhesus immunization and could rise so fast, that you won‘t treat it soon enough - so with a rising bilirubin in the first 48h you should start treatment earlier. Perhaps it has something to do with an immature blood brain barrier, too.

it is based on the work ob buthani … as you mentioned before
