Phototherapy is the process of influencing the human body with special lamps, as a result of which indirect bilirubin passes into the next phase, becoming incoherent. This method is considered the main one in the treatment of hemolytic disease of the newborn, which is accompanied by an increase in bilirubin in the blood. Additionally, the intake of inducers and activators of liver enzymes is shown.
In cases where the cause of an increase in bilirubin is stagnation of bile, it is necessary to ensure its outflow - take special medications.
