Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Robin Webb Corbett, PhD, RN C(East Carolina University)
Description: This is a guide for nursing students and staff nurses providing direct patient care for maternal-neonatal patients.
Purpose: This is a concise and succinct review of important information specific to maternal-neonatal nursing. While many reference books or textbooks are available in this area, this is a pocket guide to maternal neonatal facts, disorders, interventions, and nursing care for this population. Tabbed sections allow quick access to information in a direct care setting.
Audience: Nursing students and staff nurses who specialize in maternal-neonatal nursing are the intended audience.
Features: The six tabbed sections cover assessment, disorders, diagnostic tests, skills, medications and IVs, and patient teaching. Information is presented in bulleted lists with alerts for danger signs and highlighted effective interventions and content/section changes to help busy practicing nurses or nursing students easily locate information. Tables, flowcharts, and checklists are pertinent and helpful.
Assessment: This review is excellent as a quick resource guide in the clinical setting and as a basis for understanding maternal-neonatal nursing.
