Abstract

Hemostatic profile was studied in 25 full term non-asphyxiated neonates with blood culture-proven septicemia. Observations were compared with that of 25 healthy, non-asphyxiated, full term, birth weight and age-matched controls. Detailed coagulation tests & platelet studies were done in each of the 50 neonates by standard techniques. Hemostatic defects occurred in 96% of the septicemic neonates and none in the control group irrespective of the occurrence of clinical bleeding. The coagulation tests were deranged in 805 and platelet function tests in 92% of patients. These tests were significantly deranged in septicemic neonates as compared to control group.
