1.1. Background
Neonatal icterus is a common problem encountered in the treatment of normal
newborns, particularly in Asia, namely the appearance of yellow skin and sclera because
of the occurrence of hyperbilirubinemia to infants aged 72-120 hours and will return to
normal after 7-10 days (Nursanti, 2011). Icterus in newborns in the first week occurred in
60% of term infants and 80% of preterm infants. This is a physiological condition. Even
so, most infants will develop severe icterus that need to check and correct governance in
preventing morbidity and mortality. (Suradi & Letupeirissa, 2013).
In the United States, as many as 65% of newborns suffering from icterus in birthst
week. In Malaysia, a survey in 1998 in government hospitals and health centers under the
Ministry of Health to get 75% of newborns suffering from icterus in the first week of
life. In Indonesia, the incidence of neonatal icterus in term infants in some education
among others RSCM Hospital, Hospital Dr. Sardjito, RS Dr. Soetomo, RS Dr. Kariadi
varied from 13.7% to 85%. (MOH, 2004).
Icterus is a yellow color that appears on the skin and mucous membranes due to
increased bilirubin. Usually begin to appear in the serum bilirubin levels> 5 mg / dL.
Icterus usually physiological, but in some cases it can cause problems; The most feared is
the bilirubin encephalopathy. Babies who have bilirubin encephalopathy / kernicterus
will experience the growth and development disorders such as mental retardation,
cerebral palsy and hearing loss (MOH, 2004). This situation can be prevented, include:
1) promotion and support of breastfeeding with adePuate intake; 2) Perform a systematic
assessment bilirubin levels; 3) follow-lowering kadarbilirubin with phototherapy or
exchange transfusion; and 4) the National Institutes of Health is developing a drug
research to meghambat production of bilirubin (Nursanti, 2011).
Optimal breastfeeding management is the act of breastfeeding infants appropriate,
include: 1) early initiation of breastfeeding in the first hour; 2) management of
breastfeeding (breast milk) is optimal, at least 10-12 times per day without the provision
of water or other food additives; 3) feeding with the correct position so that it can be
ascertained ASI transfer effectively; 4) prevent the loss of birth weight of less than 8%.

One of the neonatal health care program is monitoring the incidence of neonatal
icterus. Focus action on this program is early detection by seeing the appearance of
yellowing of the skin and encourage the baby to continue breastfeeding. (MOH, Books
Charts Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI), 2008).

2.1 Medical Concept

Icterus neonatorum is increased levels of bilirubin in the extravascular tissue, so that
the skin, conjunctiva, mucosal and other body tool yellow (Ngastiyah, 2000).

2.1.2 Classification
Divided into two types, namely:
1. Physiologic icterus is icterus arising on the second day and the third day with
bilirubin levels within normal limits and did not cause morbidity in infants.
2. Pathological Icterus









Icterus is likely to become pathological or neonatal icterus sebgai considered are:

a. Icterus occurs in the first 24 hours after birth.
b. Increased bilirubin concentration of 5mg% or more every 24 hours.
c. Serum bilirubin concentration as 10mg% in preterm neonates and 12.5% in term
d. Icterus is accompanied by the process of hemolysis (blood incompatibility,
G6PD enzyme deficiency and sepsis).
e. Icterus is caused by newborn infants less than 2000gr caused by maternal age
under 20 years old or over 35 yahun and teenage pregnancy, gestation less than
36 weeks, asphyxia, hypoxia, respiratory distress syndrome, infection,
hipoglierosmolikemia, hiperkopnia, hiperosmolitas blood.
2.1.3 Etiology
1) Hemolysis increased the Rh blood incompatibility, ABO, other blood group,
G6PD enzyme deficiency, closed bleeding, and sepsis.
2) Interference processes hepatic uptake and conjugation of the liver caused by
immaturity, lack of substrate for conjugation of bilirubin, hepatic dysfunction due
to acidosis, hypoxia, and infections or absence of enzyme glukorinil tranferase
(criggler Najjar syndrome). Another cause is a deficiency of the protein Y in the
liver that plays an important role in bilirubi uptake into liver cells.

Impaired transport of bilirubin in the blood is bound to albumin was then

appointed to the liver, bilirubin binding to albumin can be affected drugs eg

salicylates, sulfatfurazole. Albumin deficiency causes more presence of indirect
bilirubin in the blood that is free and easy to attach to cells of the brain.
4) Disorders in the secretion caused by obstruction in the liver or outside the liver is
usually due to infection.
5) The gastrointestinal tract obstruction (functional or structural) can lead to
neonatal icterus due to the addition of unconjugated bilirubin derived from
6) Icterus breast milk (ASI). Breast milk icterus is icterus neonatal unconjugated
which peaked late (the day of 6-14). Can be distinguished from other causes by a
rapid reduction of bilirubin levels when substituted with formula milk for 1-2
days. Most of the ingredients contained in breast milk (beta glucoronidase) will
break down bilirubin into a form that is soluble in fat, so that the indirect bilirubin
will increase, and will then be absorbed by the intestine.

Bilirubin is a product solver hemoglobin derived from red blood cell
hemolysis / RBC. When RBC broken then prroduknya will enter the circulation,
where the hemoglobin breaks into heme and globin. Globin reused by the body while
the heme is converted to bilirubin inkonjugata and binds to albumin. Genesis are often
found is when there is the addition of bilirubin in the liver streptococcus excessive. It
can be found when there is an increase in erythrocyte destructed, polycythemia,
shortened life of erythrocytes fetus / infant, meningkatanya bilirubin from other
sources, or the presence of an increase in the enterohepatic circulation.
Impaired uptake of bilirubin plasma occurs when levels of protein Z, and
protein Y are bound by other anion, for example, in infants with acidosis or with
anoxic / hypoxic determined interference conjugation liver (deficiency of the enzyme
glucuronyl transferase) or infants suffering from disorders of excretion, eg, patients
with hepatitis neonatal or obstruction bile intra / extra hepatic. At a certain degree,
bilirubin can be toxic and damage brain tissue. The toxicity is mainly found in
bilirubin indirect bilirubin indirek.Sifat allow pathologic effects on brain cells when
bilirubin can penetrate the blood-brain barrier. Abnormalities that occur in the brain
called kernicterus / biliary encephalopathy.
Ease of bilirubin through the blood-brain barrier is not only dependent on high
levels of bilirubin but it depends also on the state of the neonate's own. Indirect

bilirubin will easily through the blood-brain barrier in infants if there is a state of
immaturity, LBW. Hypoxia, hypoglycemia, and central nervous system disorders due
to trauma or infection.

2.1.5 Clinical Manifestations

1. Looks icterus: the sclera, nails, or skin and membrane mukosa.icterus that appears
in the first 24 hours caused by hemolytic disease of the newborn, sepsis, or
mother with diabetic or infection. Icterus that appears on the second day or the
third day, and reached the peak on the third day until the seventh day is usually a
physiological icterus

2. Vomiting, anorexia, fatigue, dark urine color, the color of pale stools
(Suriadi & Yulianni, 2006)
2.1.6 Examination and Assessment Clinic at Neonatorum Icterus
1) How










It is best done in the light of the sun and by pressing a little skin to be observed
to eliminate the influence of color because the circulation of blood. There are
several ways to determine the degree of icterus is a risk of kernicterus by
means of clinical (Kremer) is carried out under ordinary light (daylight).

2) Diagnostic tests neonatal icterus


Coombs tests on the umbilical cord of newborns: Indirect Coombs test

positive result indicates a positive Rh antibodies, anti-A and anti-B in the
Capital region. The positive result of Coombs test direk indicate
sensitization (Rh-positive, anti-A, anti-B) HR from neonates.


Mother and baby blood group ABO incompatibility identified.


Total bilirubin: blood levels (conjugated) meaningful if it exceeds 1.0 - 1.5

mg / dL, which may be associated with sepsis. Levels indirect
(unconjugated) should not exceed an increase of 5 mg / dL in 24 hours or
not more than 20 mg / dL in term infants, or 14 mg / dL in preterm infants
(depending on weight).


Total serum protein: less daari levels of 3.0 g / dL indicates a decrease in

bonding capacity, especially preterm infants.


Full blood count: hemoglobin (Hb) may be low (less than 14 g / Dl for
hemolysis hematocrit (Ht) may increase (greater than 65%) in polistemia,
decrease (less than 45%) with excessive hemolysis and anemia.


Glucose: dextrosit levels may be less than 45% full blood glucose less
than 30 mg / dL or test serum glucose less than 40 mg / dL when the
newborn hypoglycemia and start using fat stores and releases a weak acid.


Urinalysis to determine the reducing agent (galactosemia)

Complications that may occur in neonatal icterus by Suriadi & Yulianni, 2006:
1. Bilirubin encephalopaty (serious complications)
2. Kernicterus; neurological damage; cerebral palsy; mental retardation,
hyperactivity, slow speech, no muscle coordination, and the shrill cries.

2.1.7 Management
1. Common actions
a. Checking blood group Mothers (Rh, ABO) and others at the time of
b. Prevent birth trauma, administration of the drug in pregnant women or
newborns that can cause icterus, infections and dehydration.
c. Early feeding with the amount of fluid and calories are in accordance with the
needs of the newborn.
d. Illumination is Puite in place bai treated.
e. Treatment of a factor if not known.
2. Accelerate the metabolism and expenditure bilirubin
a. Early feeding. Early neonatal feeding can reduce the occurrence of physiologic
icterus in neonates, because with early feeding it happens facilitation and
meconium bowel movements more Puickly removed, so that the enterohepatic
circulation of bilirubin is reduced.
b. Giving gelatin. The mechanism is by blocking or reducing the enterohepatic
circulation of bilirubin.

c. Giving phenobarbital. Efficacy of phenobarbital was held microsomal enzyme
induction, so that the conjugation of bilirubin faster.
3. Therapy sunshine
Only an additional therapy. Usually recommended after the baby has admitted to
the Hospital. It can be dried for half an hour with a different position. Conducted
between the hours of 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. because this is the time where ultraviolet
light is Puite effective in reducing levels of bilirubin. Avoid positions that make
the baby look directly at the sun as it can damage the eyes.
4. The light therapy with phototherapy
Carried out for 24 hours or at least until bilirubin levels in the blood return to
5. The exchange transfusion
The most appropriate way to treat neonatal icterus neonatorum is the exchange
6. Therapy

Action to immediately tackle icterus neonatal icterus is usually indirect

(unconjugated) in infants, using indicators of physical signs and laboratory
mainly bilirubin levels in infants is by taking action irradiation
(phototherapy), or exchange transfusion. When icterus neonatorum is direk
(conjugated) it can be cultivated by administration of UDCA (Urso
deaxycholic acid).


Causal therapy is carried out simultaneously is intended to eliminate the

causes of diseases like primary varies greatly among others:
1. Treatment of drug intoxication, chemicals, toxins from animal / food /
herbs / supplements, is to immediately terminate or avoid, and sedapatnya
issued a material cause of intoxication deng, and lavage or
administration of antidotes.
2. Therapy to overcome the infection as a cause of icterus.
3. Symptomatic therapy is the administration of drugs to overcome or
alleviate the symptoms that arise as a result of illness such as fever selin
icterus, seizures.
4. Treatment is supportive, with tjuan improve and maintain optimal patient's
general condition and needs, including providing adePuate nutrition,
fluids and electrolytes, as well as oxygen.

5. The surgical therapy; typically geared to cases such as tumors, congenital
defects, bile duct obstruction, gallstones, abnormal upaya spleen and liver
6. Preventive measures
The precautions taken by way of avoiding drinking alcohol, avoid
kesanguinitas is hereditary, and provide vaccination against hepatitis virus
A and B.
7. Prognosis
When unconjugated bilirubin levels higher can cause toxicity in the form
of bilirubin encephalopathy brain resulting in permanent disability and
even death can result. Increased conjugation of bilirubin can lead to longterm biliary cirrhosis and liver failure cause.
8. Education and Follow-up

AdePuacy of nutritional needs, fluid, electrolyte, feeding on the mother

passed though icterus associated breast milk.


Just taking the drugs as prescribed.


Avoid non-prescription drugs, herbal supplements sertag unclear.


Avoid drinking alcohol and hepatotoxic drugs.


Newborns with icterus well if given string enough sun to reduce levels of
bilirubin in the blood.


If there is a change in symptoms aggravating the immediate consultation

with the treating physician (Klidagdo, 2012).

2.2 Concept of Nursing


a. Identity
Occurs more often in boys than girls. Perhaps preterm infants, preterm infants
small for gestational age (SGA), or infants with intrauterine growth retardation
(IUGR), or large for gestational age infants (LGA), such as the baby's mother
diabetes (Mitayani, 2009).
b. Medical history

Disease History Now

History of present illness is about the symptoms of icterus, it is stated in
detail the moment when the onset of icterus, whether permanent, intermittent,
gain weight in a short time, and asked other accompanying symptoms such as
fever, pale, gastrointestinal complaints are nausea, vomiting, decreased
appetite , enlarged abdomen, upper right abdominal pain, itching, pale stools
like putty, dark color urine, bleeding, stiffness in ekstermitas, decreased
consciousness, excessive sleep. Another Puestion related to babies with
neonatal icterus is hard drinking awareness apathy, lethargy, muscle tone
changed, shrill crying, and seizures.

Formerly Disease History

e. Genitalia: whether menutuoi labia majora labia minora, the cleanliness of
the genitalia, BAB process fast with soft stool characteristics, brown for
spending bilirubin. Process BAK dark urine.
f. Ekstermitas: muscle tone, muscle spasm, edema

Nursing Diagnose
1. Risk of injury (internal) are associated with increased serum bilirubin
secondary to breakdown of red blood cells and impaired excretion of bilirubin
2. The risk of a lack of fluid volume associated with water loss (insensible water
loss) secondary of phototherapy

2.2.3 Nursing Intervention

a. Risk of injury (internal) are associated with increased serum bilirubin
secondary to breakdown of red blood cells and impaired excretion of bilirubin.
Objective: after the action for 3x24 hour nursing babies free from injury.
Criteria results: in term infants at the age of 3 days indirect bilirubin levels
below 12 mg / dl, bilirubin levels in preterm infants <10 mg / dl
1) Keep the babies warm and dry; monitor the temperature of the skin and
Rationale: cold stress potentially releasing fatty acids that compete on the
bond to albumin, thereby increasing the levels of bilirubin circulating free
2) Observasu baby in natural light, consider the sclera and oral mucosa, skin
yellowing soon
Rationale: detecting evidence of the degree of icterus

Consider the age of the baby at the beginning of icterus, distinguish the
type of icterus physiology, pathology, dank because breast milk.
Rational: physiological icterus between the first and second day of life,
icterus because milk appear between the fourth and sixth day of life is
usually only 1% -2%, pathological icterus appears within the first 24
hours of life and may lead to the development of kern icterus / enselopati

4) Monitor









Rationale: behavioral changes associated with kern icterus usually occurs

between days 3 and 10 of life and is rare before 36 hours of life.
5) Collaboration
Monitor laboratory tests as indicated

Bilirubin direct and indirect

Rationale: musty icterus show reduced or absent

2. Start phototherapy using a fluorescent lamp that is placed over the baby
Rationale: bilirubin oxidation causes the photo on an extensive network
of subcutaneous, so the water soluble bilirubin Enhancing the
capabilities that enable rapid excretion of bilirubin in feces and urine
3. Provide a blindfold when phototherapy underway

Rationale: to prevent the possibility of damage to the retina and
4. Change the baby's position frePuently, at least every 2 hours
Rationale: to prevent decubitus
b. The risk of lack of fluid volume associated with water loss (insensible water
loss) secondary of phototherapy
Objective: after the act of nursing for 3x24 hours the problem resolved
Criteria results: there are no signs of dehydration, good turgor.
1) Monitor output client
Rationale: output excessive or unbalanced intake will cause fluid balance
2) Inform the family about the importance of breastfeeding than PASI
Rationale: order intake remains balanced
3) Collaboration on fluid administration
Rationale: to prevent dehydration and lack of fluid volume



In term infants at the age of 3 days indirect bilirubin levels below 12 mg /

dl, bilirubin levels in preterm infants <10 mg / dl.


No signs of dehydration, good turgor.

of bilirubin in the body or the accumulation of bilirubin in the blood of more than 5
mg/dl within 24 hours, indicating the occurrence of functional disorders of the

can lead to kernicterus due to accumulation of unconjugated in brain cells. This
