High tech neonatal care

This little chap weighs 1.5 kg and was probably born before 34 weeks. His mum had no antenatal care and he was born at home. He wasn’t thriving so his mum brought him to MKT for medical care. His bilirubin levels were very high and the best way to get this normalised is to use UV light. We will be checking his bilirubin level regularly and he probably will need a nasogastric tube feed if his weight doesn’t improve.
