Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The book is a workable length and is best targeted at the neonatal fellow or pediatric resident with an interest in neonatology. It should be widely used in the resident’s work space as a quick definitive guide to management of neonatal infections and as a tool for discussion of the wisdom of starting therapeutic agents and optimal approaches to the diagnostic challenges of the sick neonate.” (Clinical Infectious Diseases, 22 August 2014)
