Neonatal tetanus

Recommended Posts

Hi ..

we i work , we dont see cases of neonatal tetanus , possibly because of effevctive immunization programme and hyigenic precaustion taken during delivery .

but not uncommonly we see cases of normal babies delivered at home and their umbilical cord cut by non sterile knife ( often scissor) .

so in such cases >> what should we do ??

I saw only one case since more than 20 years 

I think what to do is depend upon the epidemiology and individual case
