Term Definition
Sepsis, neonatal

A whole-body, inflammatory immune system response to a blood infection that occurs in a newborn infant usually within 72 hours of birth, usually in premature neonates. The normal processes in the blood are overwhelmed, resulting in small blood clots, blocking blood flow to vital organs, which can lead to organ failure and septic shock if left untreated.
