Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Leukocytes or white blood cells are one of the components found in the blood. White blood cells play a role in the body's defense system against germs, both bacteria, viruses, parasites or other microbes. In neonates, white blood cells range from 9,000 to 30,000 / ul blood. Later, these white blood cells will decrease in number and reach 4,000-11,000 / ul blood as adults. This value will have a slightly different difference in each laboratory, it really depends on the tool used.
In newborns, increased levels of leukocytes often indicate an infection while in the womb or during labor.
The permissibility of your baby to go home from hospital treatment depends very much on the baby's clinical condition. This is only known by doctors who do direct checks on your baby. For that, you should discuss this with the doctor who handles it. In general, babies can be treated on an outpatient basis or discharged if the baby's body temperature, blood pressure, breathing and pulse are stable, the baby is not yellow, can already suck the mother's nipples, has BAB and BAK and BB has increased steadily with a minimum of 1800 grams at premature baby.
Thus hopefully useful.
