Abstract

The changing epidemiology of early-onset neonatal sepsis among term infants has required reappraisal of approaches to management of newborn infants at potential risk. As this is now a rare disease, new strategies for reduction in diagnostic testing and empirical treatment have been developed. Adoption and refinement of these strategies should be a priority for all facilities where babies are born.
