Due to the presence of an infectious agents, stimulation of the monocytes triggers the release of the pyrogenic cytokines that

stimulate anterior hypothalamus which results in elevated thermoregulatory set point that leads to an increased heat conservation (Vasoconstriction) and increased heat production which results to fever.

Assessment Subjective: May manifest:  Irritability  Weakness Objective: The patient may manifest one or more of the following:

Temperature above normal level (36 oC) Skin warm to touch Presence of tachycardia (above 160 bpm) Presence of tachypnea (above 60 bpm) WBC elevated

2 Fluid Volume Deficit

Fluid volume deficit, or hypovolemia, occurs from a loss of body fluid or the shift of fluids into the third space one factor includes a failure of the regulatory mechanism of the newborn specificallyhyperthermia

3 Ineffective Tissue Perfusion

Since the body of the newborn is unable to compensate to the imbalances of the inflammatory response related to his condition the body tends to hyperdrive causing an inadequate oxygen in the tissues or capillary membrane leading to poor perfusion.

4 Interrupted Breastfeeding
Since the neonate is diagnosed for having a neonatal sepsis, the baby got separated from his mother and placed on a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for better management and care. Interrupted breastfeeding develops since the mother is unable to breast fed the baby continuously due to their separation.

5 Risk for Impaired Parent/Infant Attachment

Due to the newborns physical illness and hospitalization, the parents may have fear on how to handle their baby since the baby is on its fragile state and needed extra care. And since he is the 1st child hospitalized in their family, the parents might still be unsure on how to take care of the baby.
