- ItemTranscutaneous bilirubinometry versus total serum bilirubin measurement for newborns(John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. on behalf of The Cochrane Collaboration, 2017) Okwundu, C. I.; Uthman, O. A.; Suresh, G.; Smith, J.; Wiysonge, Charles S.; Bhutani, V. K.This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Diagnostic test accuracy). The objectives are as follows: - To determine the diagnostic accuracy of TcB as: i) a diagnostic test for hyperbilirubinaemia in newborns suspected to have hyperbilirubinaemia on visual inspection; ii) a diagnostic test for monitoring bilirubin levels in newborns receiving treatment (e.g. phototherapy) for hyperbilirubinaemia. - To determine whether the gestational age, postnatal age, body weight, race and site of TcB measurement have any influence on the accuracy of TcB measurement for hyperbilirubinaemia in newborns.
