Infection, Sepsis, and IV Medication Bead
Premature babies have immature immune systems that may be inefficient at fighting off bacteria, viruses, and other organisms that can cause infection. Serious infections that are commonly seen in premature babies include pneumonia , sepsis, and meningitis. Babies can contract these infections at birth from their mother, or they may become infected after birth. Infections are treated with antibiotics or antiviral drugs.
This bead symbolizes the white blood cell- These tiny soldiers help the body fight infection by protecting against foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses.
