ABSTRACT
AIM: In this study we aimed to evaluate the clinical characteristics of newborns with proven sepsis, the causative agents and antibiotic resistance in our NICU. METHOD: The charts of babies with sepsis during the years 2008-2009 in our NICU were evaluated retrospectively. RESULTS: 238 hospitalized patients had 21 septic attacks. Rate of early onset septicemia was 28.5%, rate of late onset septicemia was 71.5%. 57.1% of babies with sepsis were preterm (<37 weeks). Preterm babies weighing <1500 g was %75 of all preterm babies with sepsis. The frequency of culture positive sepsis was 57.1%, 50% of these cultures were taken from blood, 41.6% from urine, 8.3% from skin swab samples. The isolated micro-organisms were coagulase-negative staphylococci (46,1%), E.coli (17,6%), Klebsiella pneumoniae (17,6%), C. Albicans (9,8%) and Klebsiella oxytoca (9,8%). CONCLUSION: We think that we must consider the bacterial spectrum and their antibiotic resistance due to increase the success of the therapy.
