This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

The purpose of this review is to assess the effect of high dose conventional phototherapy compared with low dose conventional phototherapy on bilirubin level and length of treatment in infants with hyperbilirubinemia. Separate analyses are planned to examine high vs low dose conventional phototherapy for pathologic vs physiologic hyperbilirubinemias, and in term vs preterm infants.
