Phototherapy is a form of treatment used to treat neonatal hypoglycemia. This therapy is done by exposing newborns to a bright light source, usually through an incubator. The purpose is to lower the bilirubin level in the baby’s blood, which in turn can help treat hypoglycemia.
Bilirubin is a breakdown product of hemoglobin, and is produced naturally in the body. However, in newborns, jaundice may accumulate too much in the blood. Jaundice may be caused by several factors, including use of drugs, the baby’s gestational age, or the presence of anemia. It can be very dangerous for newborns, as it can cause brain damage, coma, or even death.

Phototherapy Unit as Treatment for Hypoglycaemia
Phototherapy is generally considered a safe and effective treatment for neonatal jaundice. However, phototherapy may have some side effects, such as irritability, dry skin, or sensitivity to light. However, these side effects are usually temporary and go away once treatment has ended.
Phototherapy can also be used to treat neonatal hypoglycemia. Hypoglycaemia is a condition in which blood sugar levels are too low, symptoms can include drowsiness, listlessness, excessive crying, seizures, or loss of consciousness. Untreated hypoglycaemia can be very dangerous, even fatal.
Phototherapy can help treat neonatal hypoglycemia by increasing insulin production in the body. By increasing insulin production, phototherapy can help normalize blood sugar levels in the baby.
Although phototherapy is generally considered safe and effective, it should be noted that it should not be used alone as treatment for neonatal hypoglycemia. It is important that hypoglycaemic infants are closely monitored by a doctor and given additional treatments such as intravenous glucose if necessary.
Effectiveness of the Infant Incubator
Childhood phototherapy, also known as ultraviolet light therapy, is a medical treatment used to treat infants with jaundice. Jaundice is a common condition in newborns, and occurs when the liver cannot metabolize bilirubin, a pigment in the blood. Childhood phototherapy uses ultraviolet light to dissolve bilirubin in the blood, allowing the liver to metabolize it more easily.
Childhood phototherapy is a safe and effective treatment and is the treatment of choice for mild to moderate jaundice. However, it is important to note that it can have side effects, including erythema (redness of the skin), photosensitivity (sensitivity to light) and sunburn.
