A Comparative Study in Sepsis and Normal Neonates-A Microbiological Perspective

Anchana Devi and Pushpa    

Abstract: The present study was designed to determine the incidence and causative organisms of bacterial sepsis in neonates by using blood culture techniques in the infected neonates and to evaluate the contribution made by C-reactive protein (CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), white cell count (WCC) and haemoglobin in mothers. Of this CRP, ESR, WCC were very high, but hemoglobin count was low in most of the sepsis mothers. Assessing CRP, ESR, WCC is a more reliable way to indicate sepsis and it was noted that the gram-negative bacteria are responsible for septicemia in maximum number of cases.
