Early onset neonatal sepsis, Maternal teenage


Objective: To study the association of early onset neonatal sepsis in maternal teenage at Uttaradit Hospital
Methods: Studied 400 mothers of newborns who were admitted to Uttaradit Hospital from 1st January 2017– 9th August 2022. Collecting data from ICD-10, Data was divided into two groups. The first group was mothers of neonates who were diagnosed with early onset neonatal sepsis amount 200 patients, and the second group was mothers of normal neonates amount 200 patients. All data were analyzed by descriptive and inferential study.
Results: Patients who were diagnosed with EONS and had maternal teenage were found to have an increased risk of EONS (AOR=1.69, 95%CI 1.03-2.76, p=0.037 using a univariate logistic regression analysis method) (AOR=1.76, 95%CI 1.01-3.06, p=0.045. using multivariate logistic regression analysis method) with statistical significance (p<0.05).
Conclusions: From the study of the association between the incidence of early onset neonatal sepsis (EONS) and maternal teenage in Uttaradit Hospital. It was found that maternal age, address, premature rupture of membrane (PROM) ≥18 hours and urinary tract infection in the prenatal period. They are risk factors that significantly increased the likelihood of early onset neonatal sepsis compared to normal neonates.
