Written by expert authors from the Children's Hospital Neonatology Program at Harvard and the Neonatology Program at the Baylor College of Medicine who care for more than 20,000 newborns each year, this volume of the Lippincott Manual Series offers a practical approach to the diagnosis and medical management of problems in the newborn. The manual's outline format gives readers rapid access to large amounts of valuable information on maternal, fetal, and neonatal problems, as well as common neonatal procedures. The book also includes the popular appendices on topics such as common NICU medication guidelines, the effects of maternal drugs on the fetus, and the use of maternal medications during lactation. Plus, there are intubation/sedation guidelines and a guide to neonatal resuscitation on the inside covers that provide crucial information in a quick and easy format.
