Written by a team of leading international experts, Neonatology at a Glance provides a concise and easy-to-read overview of neonatal medicine. Each topic is clearly explained over a two-page spread, aided by numerous diagrams and illustrations. It has been extensively updated to include recent advances in perinatal medicine, genetics, respiratory support, therapeutic hypothermia, antimicrobial stewardship, and family integrated care. The book covers the wide range of problems encountered in looking after newborn babies, from normal newborn infants to the complexities of neonatal intensive care.

Neonatology at a Glance:

  • Provides up-to-date coverage of the important conditions you will encounter, including neonatal resuscitation and care of preterm infants
  • Covers challenging topics including pain, ethical issues, patient safety, evidence-based medicine, and palliative and end of life care
  • Includes details of a wide range of practical procedures, including less invasive surfactant administration, cranial ultrasound, brain monitoring and neuroimaging, and neonatal transport

Neonatology at a Glance is the perfect guide for all health professionals looking after newborn infants, including pediatric trainees, medical students, neonatal nurse practitioners and neonatal nurses, therapists, and midwives. For neonatologists, pediatricians, and neonatal lecturers, it is a valuable resource to assist with teaching.
