Im joseph, currently employed in a small hospital here in the Philippines.
Recently I am having difficulty differentiating seizures to newborn and just plain chills.
I have this patient who was diagnosed with sepsis.
While I was making rounds, i noticed that the newborn was like having chills
so i placed an extra blanket, and lowered the temp of the aircon.
Until after few minutes, the baby began jerking.
I called the attention of the physician and prepared 02 and valium in case.
The order followed and the newborn went ok.
Can somebody enlighten my curious and seeking mind.
