This cornerstone neonatal handbook uniquely provides practical collaborative care of the critically ill neonate. Using a multidisciplinary team approach to care, it presents a combination of physiology and pathophysiology, application of these principles in clinical practice, and psychosocial aspects of care. This edition features new chapters on pain and pain relief, and skin and skin care of the neonate.

* Emphasizes clinically applicable content to help busy practitioners quickly find the information they need.
• Covers all aspects of caring for critically ill neonates, metabolic and nutritional care of the neonate, and the disorders most commonly encountered in the ICU.
• Offers a consistent format within each chapter Physiology, Clinical Assessment, Etiology and Prevention, Data Collection and Parent Teaching, Pathophysiology, Etiology, Prevention, Data Collection, Treatment, and Complications to allow the reader to readily locate the information they need.
• Presents drug dosages and side effects in easy-to-read tables.
• Includes parent teaching sections to prepare the professional to educate parents about their child's care.
• Emphasizes important psychosocial aspects of caring for critically ill neonates with supporting clinical care.
• Includes a chapter on drug withdrawal in the neonate to equip the practitioner to care for the neonate exposed in utero to legal or illegal drugs and/or alcohol.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michele A. Kacmarcik, MSN, CRNP (University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a comprehensive, clinically based handbook covering common problems encountered by neonates and their caregivers.
Purpose: The editors set out to provide a handbook with a multidisciplinary approach to neonatal intensive care within a family centered model. Refreshingly, the book includes moral decision making processes and makes note of human foibles and downfalls as well as human strengths.
Audience: The editors describe their audience as neonatal intensive care nurses, nursing and medical students, and pediatric, surgical, and family practice housestaff. NICU nurses and housestaff will find most chapters helpful and understandable, but the book may be too in-depth in some areas for all but the most advanced students. On the other hand, neonatal nurse practitioners and neonatal fellows may find some areas too shallow for their purposes.
Features: Tables, charts, and graphs are generally helpful, but some pictures and x-rays are slightly dark. In addition, the technique of printing clinically applicable material in bold typeface becomes less and less useful the more that is highlighted. References were fair for most chapters, but fell short on many. Selected readings offered at the end of many chapters are a nice touch; some chapters offered references for parents, which is a wonderful tool for anyone working in the NICU. Many chapters offered systematic procedure breakdowns that can be helpful to newer practitioners.
Assessment: Material in the handbook is up to current practice, and the book did a good job of debunking commonly held myths such as the need to do rectal temperatures on all neonates. The breastfeeding chapter is particularly thorough, and the multidisciplinary background of the editors and contributors lends a good deal of experience and authority to the book. In addition, the book touches on two very necessary and often overlooked topics — psychosocial aspects of care and the need to have evidence-based practice. Although some aspects of the handbook are disappointing — such as the pharmacology chapter, which focuses mostly on pharmacokinetics, and the case studies, of which there are too few — the overall quality of the book is good. It should serve as a helpful reference in any setting that cares for neonates.

From The Critics
The fifth edition of this text combining physiology and pathophysiology contains two new chapters on diagnostic imaging and follow-up, clinically oriented coverage of the disorders most commonly encountered in the neonatal intensive care unit, parent teaching guides, and tables of drug dosages and possible side effects. An introductory section covers evidence-based practice, and the bulk of the book covers clinical issues such as nutritional and metabolic support and diseases of the neonate. A final section covers psychosocial aspects of neonatal care. Merenstein is professor of pediatrics and senior associate dean of education at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Gardner is a neonatal consultant. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
