Abstract:

The most common causes of death in neonatal period are infections (32%) including septicemia, meningitis, pneumonia, diarrhea and neonatal tetanus. It has also been documented that birth asphyxia contributes for 29% of deaths in neonatal period. Patients presented to department of pediatrics (NICU), were examined clinically by pediatricians and 122 cases of neonatal septicemia were identified on the basis of the signs and symptoms and were included for the study. This is followed by collection of blood for culture after obtaining informed expressed written consent.GPCs were predominantly susceptible to vancomycin and clindamycin whereas GNBs were predominantly susceptible to imipenem, eftazidime/clavulanic acid and chloramphenicol.
