In brief: Several items
There are several levels of the evaluation and management of neonatal sepsis.
Sepsis can be suspected, presumed, or proven depending on the situation and degree of risk or confirmation (positive blood tests, x-rays, spinal fluid tests, & cultures). Careful monitoring, antibiotics, and supportive measures like respiratory support, shock treatment, ivs, & temperature support may all be necessary.
