Abstract

This paper discusses the spectral and energetic characteristics of radiation sources used for the phototherapy of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia (jaundice of newborns). An estimate is given of the effectiveness of phototherapeutic systems based on fluorescent, metal-halogen, and halogen lamps in combination with their spectroenergetic characteristics. It is shown that, from the viewpoint of both increasing the effectiveness of the phototherapy and reducing unfavorable side effects, as well as increasing the operating reliability, the most promising radiation sources are superbright LEDs in the blue and blue–green regions.
