Jaundice
Jaundice occurs in most newborn infants. Most jaundice is benign, but because of the potential toxicity of bilirubin, newborn infants must be monitored to identify those who might develop severe hyperbilirubinemia and, in rare cases, acute bilirubin encephalopathy or kernicterus.
BiliTool™ or PediTools™ are designed to help assess the risks toward the development of hyperbilirubinemia or “jaundice” in newborns over 35 weeks gestational age.

Pain Management
A 24% sucrose and purified water solution is an all natural, non-pharmacologic intervention that has been widely studied and proven to be associated with reductions in discomfort to the infant. Some hospitals use sugar water to help babies with pain during a circumcision or other procedures. In home-remedy terms it is translated as 1½ teaspoons sugar to an ounce of water.
