    Empiric Antibiotics for NEC

    From the above , I like the idea of Dr johansson about giving only one antibiotic instead of keeping with 3 to 4 antibiotics; can we discuss using meropenem only for NEC? Do we have infectious disease neonatologists in the team? I always feel like keeping meropenem for the next step , but using 4 antibiotics is not the best option even if most of us are doing so . What do you think?

    hepatitis B prevention

    if you want to be sure, try to reevaluate the newborns with delay of doing Ig ! But it must be at least 2-3 months after birth because surface HB ag must not be measured within 1 month of vaccination. It would even be interesting to try to measure surface antibodies and Ag to all these babies . We rarely do it . Do you do it for your babies?

    hepatitis B prevention

    A new article published in 2018 says that 2-5% of newborns from mothers infected with hepatitis B will be infected despite immediate vaccination and Ig ! But tgey don’t speak about the delay for IgHB .https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/29688415/?i=15&from=Neonatal Hepatitis you can read it .may be it can help
