Abstract: All newborns are routinely monitored for the development of jaundice due to they biological immaturity to conjugate bilirubin. This situation is worrying because neonatal jaundice is a very common condition and high-levels of unconjugated bilirubin concentration have neurotoxic effects. Therefore, a continuous bilirubin monitoring system for newborns is being suggested to overcome visual inspection errors and to reduce invasive procedures. This system is presented through a macro view modeling approach, in order to validate the requirements and to build a base infrastructure to posteriorly progress in more detailed diagrams for development support. The Unified Modeling Language was used for diagrams composition and, thus, it was also developed a brief description about the different diagram types, in order to clarify the diagrams selection. The system modeling at early stages was considered a powerful engineering methodology for new designs due to its diffusion capacity of the system basic concepts for the respective interdisciplinary group involved in this research.
