Overview

This major reference text provides in a compact, and regularly updated form all the information that doctors, midwives and nurses need to know about the prescribing of drugs, and about their safe and accurate administration.
Information on placental transfer, teratogenicity, and toxicity is provided for each listed drug, as is information on the extent to which the drug appears in breast milk (and the extent to which this matters). A whole page monograph is provided for all the commonly used drugs, blood products and vaccines and for a range of "orphan" drugs not mentioned in other standard formularies. Key references to the recently published literature are provided for each drug.
Guidance is also given on drug storage, safe drug administration, the care and use of intravascular lines and the recognition, management and reporting of adverse reactions. There is also introductory advice on the management of suspected infection, renal failure, neonatal pain, circulatory and vascular problems and the control of seizures.
The Neonatal Formulary is an invaluable reference in all hospital maternity departments.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A major advance in the availability of prescribing information for all staff involved in neonatal care.

Journal of Paediatics and Child Health (Australia)

Easy to read, up to date, and crammed full of information

Journal of Neonatal Nursing

All neonatal nurses and midwives should have access to this text.

MIDERS Midwifery Digest

Most formularies are intended for reference, but this book is also very readable. The title... does not do justice to the content, which is far more than a list of drugs, doses and preparations.

The Pharmaceutical Journal

A masterly overview of the use of medicines in neonatology.

Scottish Medical Journal
