This manual provides a practical approach to the diagnosis and management of problems of neonates. The book is divided into four sections: Maternal and Fetal Problems, Neonatal Problems, Procedures, and Appendices. An outline format provides quick access to a large amount of information. The Fifth Edition has been fully updated to reflect advances in caring for ever smaller neonates. Two popular appendices from the third edition, Effects of Maternal Drugs on the Fetus and Drug Use by Nursing Mothers, are reincorporated into the new edition.
This edition of the Manual of Neonatal Care has been completely updated and extensively revised to reflect the changes in fetal, perinatal, and neonatal care that have occurred since the sixth edition. This portable text covers current and practical approaches to evaluation and management of conditions encountered in the fetus and the newborn, as practiced in high volume clinical services that include contemporary prenatal and postnatal care of infants with routine, as well as complex medical and surgical problems.
Written by expert authors from the Harvard Program in Neonatology and other major neonatology programs across the United States, the manual’s outline format gives readers rapid access to large amounts of valuable information quickly. The Children’s Hospital Boston Neonatology Program at Harvard has grown to include 57 attending neonatologists and 18 fellows who care for more than 28,000 newborns delivered annually.
