Abstract

 Background: This study was performed to determine the frequency of positive BLOOD CULTUREs in pediatric SEPSIS cases in Buali hospital from 1389 to 1392.Methods: In this descriptive-analytic cross-sectional survey, 204 children with SEPSIS attending to Buali hospital from 1389 to 1392 were evaluated.Findings: The results demonstrated that BLOOD CULTURE was positive in 12 cases (5.9%) that the related germ was Pseudomonas in 42%, Enterobacter in 50%, and E coli in 8%.Conclusions: According to the findings, it may be concluded that empiric therapy, usually used in SEPSIS work up for the children, is a logical step because if it is performed, only 6 out of 1 hundred cases would be positive.
