Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Matthew Cortez, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This ninth edition of the premier reference textbook in neonatology includes access to an online version that is fully searchable, with images available for download. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The purpose is to update and translate the ever changing body of knowledge in neonatal medicine. It incorporates recent evidence-based information into current clinical advice for neonatologists. The outstanding group of well respected authors in the field of neonatology has done a great job with this update.
Audience: The target audience is neonatal physicians, fellows, and nurse practitioners. Anyone who spends time caring for critically ill infants would appreciate and benefit from this book.
Features: The book discusses the pathophysiology of disease processes in neonatal/perinatal medicine, stressing evidence-based management strategies. The text is complemented by excellent tables, charts, and color pictures. The online searchable version is a nice feature that allows users to access the information while on the go from an office or the NICU. The international authors add a global perspective.
Assessment: This is an outstanding edition of an already accepted core textbook in neonatology. It is aesthetically appealing, and the authors do not disappoint with their content. With this ever-changing field, the updated edition is a welcome resource for any practicing neonatologist.
