Dissertation note Background: Sepsis is the presence of bacteria in blood. Neonatal sepsis indicates bacterial blood stream infection (BSI), such as gastroenteritis meningitis, pyelonephritis, pneumonia which results in fever in neonates (Weber et al. 2003). This study was designed to check the bacteriology and sensitivity pattern of microbes causing sepsis in neonates. In this study microbial susceptibility testing against antibiotics and pattern of resistance of microbes in septic patients was determined. It was conducted on neonates suspected from sepsis in Sir Ganga Ram Hospital Lahore, Pakistan. Hypothesis: By using blood cultures and different biochemical tests bacterial etiological agents of neonatal sepsis were determined and their sensitivity pattern and empirical therapies were evaluated. Material & Methods: Blood samples were collected from septic neonates admitted in Sir Ganga Ram Hospital keeping all necessary aseptic precautions with the assistance of trained professionals. The pathogens were isolated, identified and purified by selective culturing methods, which were subjected to active growth, during which sensitivity to different antibiotics were checked. The sensitivity was measured by area marked by the zone of inhibition, and National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS). Standard limit was a key indicator towards resistant bacteria. Statistical Analysis: The collected data was analyzed by appropriate statistical procedure. Outcome: It was designed to isolate and identify the pathogens responsible for neonatal sepsis and to see the effects of different antibiotics regimens for treatment of neonatal sepsis by evaluating the improvement in clinical condition, rate of complications of disease and incidence of death due to this fatal disease.
