Abstract

Objective: To study the variation of separation of umbilical stump in newborns who received intravenous antibiotics and compare it with healthy newborns.

Method: Two groups of newborns were taken, each comprising of 100 newborns. One group had received intravenous antibiotics for sepsis and the other group comprised of healthy newborns. On follow ups, the day of separation of umbilical stump was asked to the mothers and was noted and analyzed.

Results: Newborns who received antibiotics had a delay in separation of umbilical stump (mean=18.26 days), whereas the healthy newborns had early cord separation (mean of 8.68 days).

Conclusion: Delay in umbilical stump separation in antibiotics received newborns is due to decreased infiltration by bacteria and thus leucocytes and delayed digestion by bacteria. The family members can be counselled accordingly to allay their anxiety.
