Assessment of neonatal septicemia in government medical college, bettiah and antibiotic susceptibility pattern in them
Dr. Anil Kumar, Dr. Sudesh Kumar
There is a difference in the causative organisms for neonatal sepsis between the developed and developing countries. In the developing world, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella sp. are the most common pathogens of earlyonset sepsis, whereas Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Streptococcus pnemoniae are the most commonly reported organisms in late-onset sepsis. Hence the present study was planned to assess the bacteriological profile of clinically suspected septicemia cases of neonates from blood sample and to determine the sensitivity pattern and selection of appropriate antibiotics of the same. The present study was planned in the Department of Pediatrics, Government Medical College Bettiah, West Champaran from Dec 2018 to April 2019. Total 280 cases were studied and out of that 42 cases were found positive for the septicemia. The spectrum of bacteria associated with neonatal sepsis is constantly changing. The rates of Antibiotic resistance among the bacterial pathogens is high. Hence there is a need to constantly monitor the same in NICU’s. Antimicrobial stewardship program should be implemented to make antibiotic policy at local level to deal the current scenario.
