Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia or Neonatal Jaundice is one of the most common problems encountered in term newborns. Although up to 60 percent of term newborns have clinical jaundice in the first week of life. Jaundice is considered pathologic if it presents within the first 24 hours after birth. ABO incompatibility is a reaction of the immune system that occurs if two different and not compatible blood types are mixed together. ABO incompatibility disease afflicts newborns whose mothers are blood type O , and who have a baby with type A, B, or AB.

Ordinarily, the antibodies (IgG) against the foreign blood types A and B that circulate in mother's bloodstream remain there, because they are of a type that is too large to pass easily across the placenta into the fetal circulation. Some fetal red cells always leak into mother's circulation across the placental.These fetal red cells stimulate the formation of a smaller type of anti-A or anti-B antibody which can pass into the baby's circulation and there cause the destruction of fetal red cells. The increased rate of destruction of red cells causes a subsequent increase in waste product production. This excess waste product, bilirubin, can overwhelm the normal waste elimination processes and lead to jaundice, the presence of excess bilirubin.

put the newborn at increased risk of infection.On the other hand. . sepsis in a newborn is an infection that spreads throughout the baby·s body. such as premature or prolonged rupture of the membranes or infection in the mother. Sepsis occurs in less than 1 percent of newborns (1 out of every 100). but accounts for up to 30 percent of deaths in the first few weeks of life. Complications experienced during birth. full-term newborns. Infection is 510 times more common in premature newborns and in babies weighing less than 5½ pounds than in normal-weight.

Her mother and father blood type was O while baby Girl Autonomy blood type was A. Laguna and delivered via NSD by her mother last July 30. She has undergone intermittent phototherapy at her first day in Septic Intensive Care Unit then she was under intensive phototherapy when we last handled and visited her. 2010 because of jaundice and fever. she has been diagnosed by hyperbilirubinemia secondary to ABO incompatibility tc sepsis.BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY Baby Girl Autonomy is a full term baby from Pila. 2010 at LPH and has been admitted at septic ward (PICU) last August 1. .

RATIONALE FOR CHOOSING THE CASE This case has been chosen by the group under following reasons: ‡To better understand Hyperbilirubinemia with ABO incompatibility its nature and appropriate interventions that may contribute to patient·s recovery. ‡To defy our capabilities in presenting such challenging case. ‡ Challenge our skills in connecting relevant details of the disease to actual care of client. ‡To benefit the student nurses in enhancing their skills in giving care for such patient diagnose with Hyperbilirubinemia with ABO incompatibility. ‡Be able to construct a pathophysiology. .

. we hope to be of help to our fellow students by sharing first hand experiences about the condition. Hence. is to aid in prompt and successful client recovery.SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY To the patient This study hopes to be most beneficial to the patient as the core purpose of this. To the students & to the Clinical Instructor This study presents various observations and encounters upon handling the client and sustaining for her recovery.

flv Our case study is all about Hyperbilirubinemia with ABO incompatibility. or AB.SUMMARY YouTube . The doctor ordered complete blood count and bilirubin test.neonatal jaundice. The laboratory result confirms her diagnosis Hyperbilirubinemia because of high neonatal bilirubin and high unconjugated bilirubin. Hyperbilirubinemia also known as neonatal jaundice is a yellow discoloration of the skin of a baby due to high unconjugated bilirubin because of breakdown of RBC and immaturity of the liver. also there·s high WBC and lymphocytes in her CBC that·s why she experienced fever. . so she was admitted to septic ward (PICU). and her baby blood type was A. Our patient was also diagnosed from ABO incompatibility because her mother and father were blood type O while baby girl autonomy was blood type A. Our patient Baby Girl Autonomy was diagnosed from Hyperbilirubinemia secondary to ABO incompatibility t/c sepsis because she experienced fever and her skin became yellowish in color after 24 hours after delivery which is a physiologic sign of jaundice. B. During our duty Group Autonomy rendered quality nursing care for our patient to aid quick and successful patient recovery. while ABO incompatibility occurs when mother blood was O.

we conclude that ABO Incompatibility afflicts newborns whose mothers are blood type O can lead to destruction of RBC·s. The incresed rate of destruction of RBC·s causes a subsequent increase in bilirubin that can overwhelm the normal waste product elimination processes and lead to jaundice. still. We·ve also rendered some health teachings to her family and provided them support. she has jaundice but has normal normal vital signs.CONCLUSION Therefore. At the end of our shifts. we maintained the core temperature of our patient within normal range since she had a hyperthermia. This type of condition of our patient requires phototherapy as its treatment. we met our goals in providing her safety and comfort.We seen her at ntervals and attended her needs. As student nurses. At the last day in the ward. . practiced aseptic technique since she was at risk for infection and prtected her from any injury.

RECOMMENDATION To the students: ‡Study their lessons first before going to the area. ‡Emphasize SO for the proper hygiene of the patient. ‡Instruct SO to take regular medication of the patient prescribed by the physician. ‡Be responsible enough as a student nurse. ‡Always follow the hospital rules. ‡Encourage mother for breast feeding and instruct its importance. ‡Give quality nursing care to the patient. ‡Bring complete parafernalias. To the patient: ‡Encourage SO of the patient for regular check up. .
