  1. However, it continues to be a common cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) defines early onset sepsis as a blood or cerebrospinal fluid culture-proven infection occurring within the first seven days of life. Group B Streptococcus (GBS) remains the leading cause of neonatal sepsis.

    Sepsis in the Newborn Sepsis is the commonest cause of neonatal mortality; it is responsible for about 30-50% of the total neonatal deaths in developing countries.1,2 It is estimated that up to 20% of neonates develop sepsis and approximately 1% die of sepsis related causes.2 Sepsis related mortality is largely preventable

  3. Oct 01, 2020 · The signs of neonatal sepsis are variable; therefore any infant with abnormal vital signs, abrupt decline in feeding, apparent change in mental status, tone, or perfusion warrants investigation for sepsis. The most commonly encountered early signs are fever, tachypnoea, lethargy, and poor feeding. 19 However, both a hypothermic baby with a low ...

  6. Dec 05, 2019 · Background Sepsis is a major cause of morbidity and mortality among neonates and infants. Antibiotics are a central part of the first line treatment for sepsis in neonatal intensive care units worldwide. However, the evidence on the clinical effects of the commonly used antibiotic regimens for sepsis in neonates remains scarce. This systematic review aims to assess the efficacy and harms of ...

  7. The most cost-effective method depends on local epidemiology including maternal GBS carriage rates and the incidence of neonatal sepsis in the population. In the UK a risk-factor based approach is employed which is outlined in detail in the RCOG guideline “Group B Streptococcal Disease, Early-onset” (Green-top Guideline No. 36 2017)
