Overview

This solid resource provides a comprehensive examination of neonatal nursing management from a physiologic and pathophysiologic approach. It features a complete physiologic and embryonic foundation for each neonatal system, as well as coverage of associated risk factors, genetics, critical periods of development, nutrition, and parenting.

• A collaborative approach encompassing medical, surgical, and psychosocial care is emphasized.
• The most up-to-date research findings demonstrate the rationales for practice strategies and clinical decision making.
• Appropriate diagnostic tests and their interpretation are discussed in each system chapter.
• The family in the continuum of care is emphasized — including the changing family unit and the sibling's adaptation to a new family member.
• In depth discussions of each organ system include assessment and management strategies, complications, and new technologies.
