Infections in Newborns

Infants have weak immune systems. Most diseases in infants are caused by microbes, while some are caused by viruses. Symptoms of disease incorporate temperature over 38.0 degrees C, poor sustaining, irritability,excessive sleepiness, fast breathing and change in behaviour. If new born baby has an infection, they might be taken to the exceptional care nursery of the hospital, where they will be set on a warming bed or in an incubator to manage their body temperature. They might be connected to a cardiorespiratory monitor to measure their heart rate and breathing. They may also need a monitor called a pulse oximeter to determine whether there are proper levels of oxygen in their body.
