The majority of newborns usually suffer from some form of jaundice. Now an easy-to-use tool for instant diagnosis. The system also monitors children’s other physical conditions. This device can be worn which is also the first wearable of its kind.
As the level of cat ribbon in the blood of the majority of newborns increases, the color of the baby turns yellow. When the condition worsens, it can affect a child’s life and usually affect the brain. If a newborn baby becomes jaundiced, sitting in the sun or with a blue light scatters the cat’s ribbon and is excreted in the urine.
But maintaining the right amount of blue light is a difficult process. That’s why this instrument can now be used to accurately measure cat ribs at all times. The world’s first wearable sensor can also measure the amount of oxygen in the blood and the pulse.
The device, developed by Dr. Hiroki Ota of Yokohama National University, was published on March 3. He says 60 to 80 percent of the world’s eye-opening children suffer from jaundice. At this stage, it is very important to monitor and treat jaundice. This makes phototherapy and treatment easier.
Cat ribbonometers are currently used in maternity homes around the world, but so far no device has been developed that can detect both oxygen in the blood and the baby’s pulse at the same time. Thus, this new system is very effective. This device is like a bandage that can be applied to a child’s head. It uses a special lens to scatter light in the baby’s head and measure the jaundice in the blood from the returning light.
Although it is a slightly thicker and thicker sensor at the moment, it can be made thinner and easier to wear over time. Initially, it was tested on 50 tiny mice, with very good results.
