Expert Answer :
It appears like a typical case of RDS with secondary sepsis or it could be that baby had intra-uterine sepsis predisposing for early delivery. Needs aggressive management of sepsis with NORMAL antibiotics rather than such STRONG ones. This baby will need bowel rest for 7 days for suspected NEC and probably parenteral nutrition - should be ideally managed in a tertiary NICU.
