FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

about jaundice and biliblankets

what does a biliblanket do?

biliblanket is a portable phototherapy device for the treatment of neonatal jaundice (hyperbilirubinemia). BiliBlanket is a trademark of General Electric’s Datex-Ohmeda subsidiary, but its name has become the generic, colloquial term for a range of similar products and the term used in the medical professions.

Are biliblankets safe?

The BiliBlanket system is safe to use 24 hours a day for as long as necessary.  Please consult with your baby’s pediatrician for a plan of care.

how do you use phototherapy?

Phototherapy is treatment with a special type of light (not sunlight). It’s sometimes used to treat newborn jaundice by lowering the bilirubin levels in your baby’s blood through a process called photo-oxidation. For more information, see newborn jaundice treatment:

how long does it take for phototherapy to work?

It is important that your baby remains under phototherapy lights for as much time as possible each day. When on a biliblanket, your baby can remain on the biliblanket while feeding. Jaundice often takes about two weeks to disappear.
