Abstract
The effect of phototherapy was studied between blue and white lights, and continuous and intermittent regimens in the treatment of jaundice for the low birth weights at Busan Children’s Hospital from October, 1981 to March, 1982. The results were as following: 1) The duration of phototherapy necessary to reduce serum bilirubin level below 8 mg/dl were 58.9 hours with blue light, and 102.3 hours with white light respectively. (P<0.01) 2) The serum bilirubin level started to decrease at 2.6 days of age with blue light, while at 3.7 days of age with white light. (P<0.01) 3) The body weight loss during phototherapy was 2.9% per day with blue light, and 1.4% per day with white light. (P<0.01) 4) There was no significant difference of statistics on the effect of phototherapy between continuous and intermittent regimens.
