Abstract

We correlated commonly measured clinical and chemical variables in sick neonates to the total bilirubin-binding capacity (TBBC) measured with the peroxidase method. The significant correlations related to the infants’ maturity and degree of illness. The factors having the strongest relation to TBBC were Apgar scores, total plasma albumin and bilirubin levels, gestational age, birth weight, use of ventilatory assistance, and maternal general anesthesia.
