Hyperbilirubinemia 37 day or two following delivery. They immediately have the risk factor of prematurity and may exhibit numerous other risk factors, such as infection, hypoxia, metabolic acidosis, hypothermia, and hypoglycemia. Many other risk factors, as listed earlier, may also be present in this population of infants. Temperature Instability and Its Affect on Bilirubin As discussed in Chapter 4, “Temperature Instability, Hypoglycemia, and Increased Metabolism,” metabolism of brown fat, which occurs in the first few hours after birth as a mechanism of heat production, results in the release of fatty acids.

The shivering helps increase core temperature. Likewise, increased metabolic activity, such as exercise, helps to increase core temperature. Sweating helps to cool us down when core temperatures become higher than normal. Neither of these autonomic responses to heat or cold is present in the newborn, so regulation of temperature becomes much more difficult and complex for them.
