The BiliCare System is a non-invasive device used to measure serum bilirubin levels by means of a light based on spectroscopy – measuring substances using light at varying wavelengths for determining hyperbilirubinemia (newborn baby jaundice).
The light is transmitted through the outer ear and absorbed by the bilirubin which will calculate the bilirubin levels according to a customized algorithm.
1) Simply press measure on the home screen to initiate the measurement process
Depending on the setup options chosen, you can take the measurement or enter Nurse
and/or Patient IDs. These IDs may be scanned with the built-in barcode reader, or may be
entered manually using the onscreen keyboard.
2) Position the BiliCare clip on the baby’s ear to take your measurement
Pressure is applied automatically (not by the user) and the angle at which you position the
device is not an issue, so regardless of whether this is your _rst or hundredth time using
the BiliCare system, your results will be the same.
3) You are now ready to review your results or take additional measurements per
your hospital protocol and device set-up
