Initiation of emergency treatment of sick new born within 30 minutes will reduces mortality and provide timely treatment . Early treatment will reduce complications ( like organ damage ) thus reduces hospital stay of neonate. It also reduces morbidity and long term sequale in neonate. It reduces the financial burden of the family and as a whole cost of therapy. In a prospective cohort study of 91 infants and children presenting to community hospitals with septic shock (defined by hypotension or delayed capillary refill), each hour delay in initiation of appropriate resuscitation or persistence of hemodynamic abnormalities was associated with a clinically significant increased risk of death (odds ratio [OR] 1.5 and 2.3, respectively)
