Bacterial Profile and Antibiogram of Neonatal Sepsis in Nigeria; A Review of Literatures

Uchenna Ekwochi
2020 The Anatolian Journal of Family Medicine  
The Anatolian Journal of Family Medicine had an equal prevalence of 27.3%. Ciprofloxacin 8+ and Ofloxacin 5+ had the highest sensitivity, followed by Ceftriaxone 4+, Gentamycin 4+ and Meronem 3+. All the organisms tested were resistant to ampicillin. The inter-regional similarity of the bacterial isolates and antibiogram is striking. This finding could be utilized in making an evidence-based decision on the choice of antibiotics in the treatment of neonatal sepsis where a local pattern is challenging to establish.
