About

Neonatal Sepsis is an invasive bacterial infection that usually occurs during the neonatal period. It is a blood infection caused by Escherichia coli (E. coli).

- Can be resolved if treated early

It affects the infants that have a low birth weight, a depressed function at birth, maternal perinatal risk factor like low socio-economic status, or premature rupture of membranes. Male infants are more likely to be affected by this as compared to females. Infants affected by early-onset Sepsis is usually within the 90 days of their birth. sepsis occurs after a week or within three months of age.
