Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Sharon M. Conliffe-Torres, MSN, RN (University of Pennsylvania College of Nursing)
Description: This new book provides a comprehensive overview of topics pertinent to all aspects of low-risk perinatal nursing. As an edited work with contributions from multiple experts in the field of maternal-child nursing, this book describes the physiologic and psychosocial adaptations occurring during pregnancy; maternal complications and risk assessment strategies; labor and delivery; antenatal, intrapartal, and postnatal care; neonatal adaptation and routine newborn care; discharge planning strategies; and perinatal home care services. It also includes information concerning collaborative care management; quality improvement and outcome monitoring; and professional, legal, and health policy issues directly impacting perinatal nursing practices.
Purpose: As stated in the introduction, the purpose is to provide a comprehensive reference manual reflecting the current status of perinatal nursing practices within the United States.
Audience: Targeted for low-risk perinatal nurses, this nursing text provides and excellent, up-to-date clinical resource manual relevant for all perinatal nurses across multiple healthcare settings. While providing an easy-to-read reference for experienced nurses, this text is also useful as an orientation guide for new employees as well as providing graduate nurses a comprehensive review of maternity nursing for licensing exams.
Features: This book is well organized and is presented in a clear and concise manner. The 18 chapters are logically grouped into sections, with each section focusing on a specific aspect of perinatal nursing practice. Numerous illustrations, photographs, boxed tables summarizing major clinical concepts, and extensive reference lists facilitate understanding of subject materials. Another salient feature is the appendix that includes sample formats of clinical algorithms, care paths, quality improvement surveys, and assessment and documentation forms.
Assessment: This text is an excellent clinical resource for perinatal nurses and students providing care to low-risk antenatal, intrapartal, postpartal, and neonatal clients. The book examines the multiple issues associated with normal pregnancy, childbirth, and newborn care, and also discusses the influences of professional, legal, and economic factors on current perinatal practice. The relevance and timeliness of this subject material makes this text a valuable reference for low-risk perinatal nurses in all areas of practice.
