abstract

  • GN organisms were the major cause of septic shock in a group of pediatric hematology-oncology patients with positive blood cultures although they were recovered less frequently than gram-positive organisms. In our study, non-neutropenic patients with indwelling catheters were at approximately the same risk for GN shock as neutropenic patients. Monitoring blood carbon dioxide content may be useful in the early diagnosis of GN infection.
