Overview

This handy pocket book provides an easy-to-follow roadmap to the processes and procedures essential to care of normal newborns. The ideal quick-reference for family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, medical students, and pediatric residents, this guide focuses on the “what” and “how” of normal newborn care—with clear descriptions highlighted by tables, charts, illustrations, and algorithms.

Abundant tables and charts provide vital information at a glance—from use of maternal medications in breast-feeding and newborn metabolic screening tests, to a newborn-specific formulary and newborn-specific lab values. Also included are line drawings that illustrate procedures and photographs of common skin and eye disorders.
