Vaccination is the administration of antigenic material (a vaccine) to stimulate an individual’s immune system to develop adaptive immunity against a pathogen. Vaccination is the most effective method of preventing infectious diseases.
Vaccines help protect against many diseases that include tetanus, diphtheria, mumps, measles, pertussis (whooping cough), and polio. Many of these infections can cause serious or life-threatening illnesses and may lead to lifelong health problems.

Exchange transfusion is a potentially life-saving procedure that is done to counteract the effects of severe jaundice or changes in the blood due to diseases such as sickle cell anemia.
The procedure involves slowly removing the patient’s blood and replacing it with fresh donor blood or plasma.
Total Parenteral Nutrition
Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) is providing nutrition through parenteral route i.e. intravenous, to a patient.
TPN is used for patients who cannot or should not get their nutrition through eating & includes a combination of sugar and carbohydrates (for energy), proteins (for muscle strength), lipids (fat), electrolytes, and trace elements.
Peritoneal dialysis is a way to remove waste products from your blood when your kidneys can no longer do the job adequately.
Phototherapy (light treatment) is the process of using light to eliminate bilirubin in the blood. These light waves are absorbed by baby’s skin and blood and changes bilirubin into products, which can pass through their system.
Some “normal” jaundice will disappear within a week or two without treatment. Other babies will require treatment because of the severity of the jaundice, the cause of the jaundice, or how old the baby is when jaundice appears.
