Key PointsQuestionHow effective is subthreshold neonatal phototherapy during the birth hospitalization in preventing readmissions for phototherapy? FindingsIn this cohort study of 25 895 newborns born at 35 or more weeks’ gestation from 2010 through 2014 with total serum bilirubin levels just below the threshold for phototherapy, receipt of phototherapy during the birth hospitalization decreased readmission for phototherapy, but often with large numbers needed to treat. Formula feeding was also protective against readmission for phototherapy. MeaningAlthough an effective treatment, subthreshold phototherapy during the birth hospitalization requires treatment of many newborns unnecessarily for each readmission prevented.
