HOW HYPOTHERMIA LEADS TO HYPOGLYCEMIA, INCREASED OXYGEN CONSUMPTION, AND JAUNDICE The process of triglyceride oxidation to convert brown fat to heat requires increased oxygen and glucose consumption. This increased oxygen consumption can put further strain on an already compromised infant at risk for respiratory distress, such as the late preterm infant. Increased oxygen consumption can lead to increased lactic acid production, resulting in metabolic acidosis, which can lead to pulmonary vasoconstriction and decreased blood flow to vital organs (Verklan & Walden, 2010).

The bilirubin measured with this type of jaundice is known as unconjugated, indirect, or fat-soluble bilirubin (Newman, 2009). Pathological Jaundice Pathological jaundice is always abnormal and characterized by early onset of jaundice before 24 hours of age. The bilirubin measured with this type of jaundice is called direct or water-soluble bilirubin and can be either conjugated or unconjugated (Verklan & Walden, 2010). Conjugated means it is bound to liver enzymes and unconjugated means it is circulating loose without being bound to enzymes.

Instead, methods to increase effectiveness and frequency of feeding should be employed, because frequent ingestion of colostrum will help speed the passage of meconium.
