Overview

Neonatology at a Glance provides a concise, illustrated overview of neonatal medicine. Written by leading international experts, it provides essential information on perinatal medicine, delivery, the normal newborn infant and neonatal problems encountered in neonatal intensive care units and their management.

Each topic is supported by excellent illustrations, diagrams, and, for the first time, video clips to show neonatal resuscitation and stabilizing the sick newborn, normal examination, the baby with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, recognition of seizures and practical procedures.

Neonatology at a Glance:
• Provides up to date coverage of the important conditions you will encounter
• Covers challenging topics including pain, ethical issues, quality improvement, evidence based medicine and palliative care
• Features new sections on fetal medicine, respiratory support, therapeutic hypothermia, amplified EEG and perinatal neuroimaging
• Integrates invaluable details about practical procedures including neonatal resuscitation and transport
• Supplemented by video materials and artwork which can be viewed via the companion website at www.ataglanceseries.com/neonatology

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It would be a useful complement to more in-depth information that paediatricians and neonatal nurses would provide to parents with a sick or preterm infant." (NZ College of Midwives magazine, 1 December 2011)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jay P. Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a second edition of a book first published in 2006 by two of the deans of neonatal medicine in the U.S. and U.K. Part of the At a Glance series aimed at medical students and residents, it provides a quick overview of this field of medicine with no significant, in-depth coverage or references. The book is quite attractive with outstanding graphics, charts, and pictures to complement the concise text.
Purpose: The editors state the book is designed to briefly review and illustrate the "breadth of neonatology in under 100 double pages." They have identified the most important points and have used the visual impact of their pictures and graphics to produce a very effective and appealing book for young clinicians or students. This is a wonderful resource for the novice to neonatal care.
Audience: It is aimed at medical students, residents, nurses and nurse practitioners, therapists, and midwives. It is not meant as a resource for in-depth discussion of any topic and it does not cover therapy in a meaningful way as do the usual handbooks in neonatology. The editors are two of the most respected neonatologists in the U.S. and the U.K., and the contributors are also well respected.
Features: The book covers the entire field of neonatology in 100 double pages. While most of the disease processes and therapeutic interventions are reviewed in this format, the editors also include sections on ethical and research issues, quality assurance, evidence-based medicine, global neonatology, newborn death, autopsy, and neonatal outcome after extreme prematurity. The color graphics, pictures, and charts are superb. Scattered throughout the book are key point and question boxes that highlight the important points. There are no references, although I found the information quite up to date.
Assessment: This beautifully constructed book makes the field of neonatology quite accessible and appealing. It is not aimed at experienced neonatologists, but some of the charts and graphs can be used by senior physicians as teaching aids. In some ways, this book resembles Care of the High-Risk Neonate (Elsevier), which Dr. Fanaroff coedited for five editions from 1973 to 2001, but the color graphics in this book make it much more attractive.
