Using this tool, the risk of early-onset sepsis can be calculated in an infant born > 34 weeks gestation. The interactive calculator produces the probability of early onset sepsis per 1000 babies by entering values for the specified maternal risk factors along with the infant's clinical presentation.

Neonatal Early-Onset Sepsis Calculator. Persistent need for NCPAP / HFNC / mechanical ventilation (outside of the delivery room) Need for supplemental O 2 > 2 hours to maintain oxygen saturations > 90% (outside of the delivery room) Respiratory distress (grunting, flaring, or retracting) not requiring supplemental O 2.

This sepsis calculator is based on the the published work of Puopolo KM and the perinatal research unit at Kaiser Permanente. The risk prediction model detailed in the publications has been implemented afresh on this site. This site is designed for use by clinicians. Please see the references, disclaimer and about section for more details.
Background: Utilization of the neonatal sepsis calculator published by Kaiser Permanente is rapidly increasing. This freely available online tool can be used in assessment of early-onset sepsis (EOS) in newborns 34 weeks' gestation or more based on maternal risk factors and neonatal examination.
