Jaundice can harm babies. When bilirubin levels get high enough it can cause a brain injury, KI (kernicterus.)
KI can cause athetoid cerebral palsy, dystonia, hearing loss, and many other conditions.
Proper guidance for testing and treatment can do much to prevent this devastating condition!
Essentially preemies face a greater danger from jaundice because their livers are less mature.
WE MUST HAVE STANDARDS OF CARE FOR JAUNDICE IN PREEMIES TO #stopKI!
