In brief: ABO hemolysis

Hemolysis in newborns due to ABO incompatibility is not preventable, but is manageable under the care of an experienced pediatrician or neonatologist.
For this reason, newborns from mothers with type O blood type or who are Rh- will be screened closely for this condition, as early recognition and intervention is key to successful recovery.
