Neonatal nurses are faced with a tremendous need for accurate, comprehensive information while in the clinical setting. Kenner and Lott's new book, Neonatal Nursing Handbook is designed to meet these needs by providing accessible information to assist these practitioners in their clinical decision-making and critical thinking. The new book also provides an excellent complementary reference to Kenner & Lott's Comprehensive Neonatal Nursing: A Physiologic Perspective, 3rd Edition. This handbook is organized primarily by body systems and includes a brief definition of the neonatal problem, followed by diagnostic tests and labs, differential diagnosis where appropriate, and then an algorithm to aid in the decision making process. The overall format is brief outlined and bulleted information wherever possible.

• An accessible, quick reference handbook to assist neonatal nurses in making sound clinical decisions and to think critically.
• Consistent format presentation that begins with a brief definition of the problem, diagnostic tests and labs, differential diagnosis where appropriate, and concludes with an algorithm to assist in the decision making process.
• Builds on the strength of content presented in Kenner & Lott's Comprehensive Neonatal Nursing: A Physiologic Perspective, 3e.
• Chapter 19 focuses on Discharge Planning / Coordination of Home Care to provide the nurse with important patient/family teaching and follow up care considerations for the neonate's condition.
• Chapter 20 End-of-Life or Palliative Care helps the nurse understand these important and sensitive care considerations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Cynthia L. Weiss, RNC (Medical University of South Carolina College of Nursing)
Description: This book is a comprehensive review and reference for the bedside neonatal nurse. The book organizes the entire process from prenatal/antenatal factors to discharge in an easy to use reference.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to provide a convenient resource that would provide "information at a glance." While there are many more detailed and specialized books for many subjects, this work is a concise and thorough review of the many aspects of the specialty important for the bedside clinician. This book meets the objectives. There is always a need for fresh, concise, easy to find information in a field in which the knowledge changes constantly.
Audience: The authors are credible, recognized leaders in the field of neonatal nursing and the experience and expertise is apparent throughout the book. Although the book is primarily targeted toward the bedside RN, it also has value for the student, resident/intern, and neonatal nurse practitioner.
Features: The book covers the entire realm of subjects that directly affect the neonatal nurse. Everything from antenatal to delivery room management through physiologic changes and systems to discharge planning and end-of-life care. The section on end-of-life care and the cultural/religious information is especially well done and a unique and welcome addition that I already find myself using often. As a nurse in the "global village," I find the book arms me with important information that can help me care for families with values other than my own. I would have liked to see policies/procedures from more diverse locations. The "art" of neonatal nursing is varied, and the inclusion of a wider cross-section of experiences would have helped. The section on the infant with ambiguous genitalia was disappointing. It should have emphasized the "social" emergency that this presents and the supportive care needed to guide the family and caregiver.
Assessment: This is an excellent reference for anyone involved in the care of critically ill and premature newborns. It provides concise, easy to find information vital for bedside caregivers of various disciplines. The information and references are timely and the book offers some unique features not found in other references. While I was reviewing this book, I found myself using it for information and assistance with many issues and can personally attest to its ease of use and timely information.
