Infections in Neonates

In the new borns the infections occur during the first four weeks after birth. Hypothermia occurs due to irregular body temperature. It can makes sleepy, confused, and clumsy. Meconium is a sticky consistency dark green substance containing gastrointestinal secretions, bile, bile acids, mucus, pancreatic juice, blood, swallowed vernix caseosa, lanugo, and cellular debris. Neonatal septicemia is a clinical syndrome mostly occuring in the first month after the birth. For diagnosis we use techniques like polymerase chain reaction, DNA micro array.
