This Spiral® Manual provides a practical approach to the diagnosis and medical management of newborns. Chapters cover maternal, fetal, and neonatal problems and common neonatal procedures. An outline format provides quick access to a large amount of information, and the outline headings are standardized in this edition. The updated coverage includes new information on fetal assessment, survival of premature infants, and perinatal asphyxia and new guidelines on neonatal jaundice. The popular appendices include effects of maternal drugs on the fetus, maternal medications during lactation, and NICU medication guidelines. A neonatal dosing chart and intubation/sedation guidelines appear on the inside covers.
