Abstract

The authors describe the advantages of a new method to determinate the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (micro-ESR) during neonatal GBS infections. They utilize a capillary tube placed at a 45 degrees angle and have the results of this test only after 15 minutes. The micro-ESR is proposed as a simple and quick method of sepsis screen in term and preterm newborns.
