The Floppy Infant
Spastics International Medical Publications, 1980 - Central nervous system - 158 pages
The second edition of The Floppy Infant is devoted to the recognition and diagnosis of the floppy infant syndrome. It includes a review of some of the more important causes and provides a practical approach to the assessment and management such children require. The text of the first edition has been completely revised, but the emphasis has not changed: it remains an immensely practical handbook for the clinician.
