Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jay P. Goldsmith, MD(Tulane University School of Medicine)
Description: This is the sixth edition (previous edition published in 2004) of this now tested quick reference guide which has become the preferred pocket reference for students and residents working in newborn medicine. This edition has 150 more pages than its predecessor, but is no thicker. It has new chapters on newborn screening, blood component therapy, management of the late preterm newborn, and complementary and alternative medical therapies. The section of on-call problems, unique to this type of manual, reviews over 30 problems that might confront on-call physicians at night or on weekends.
Purpose: This is a comprehensive quick reference guide for anyone practicing newborn medicine, whether in a neonatal intensive care unit or the newborn nursery. The editors have attempted to cover most subjects in neonatology, even such areas as complementary and alternative therapies. This type of material is not usually found in a quick reference and illustrates the comprehensive nature of this manual. Since the field of neonatology is changing rapidly, the editors attempt to update their previous edition and meet their objectives well.
Audience: The intended audience includes anyone practicing newborn medicine including nurses, NNPs, students, residents, and attending physicians. The topics range from problems that general pediatricians might encounter in the newborn nursery to complicated issues found in patients in the NICU. The discussions are direct and pragmatic with an emphasis on diagnosis and treatment rather than on pathophysiology and biochemistry. For this reason, and its relative value in terms of price, this is a book that every nursery and NICU might consider having as a reference. The editors are authorities in neonatology and, although many of the contributors are young staff at the assistant professor level, their contributions are well done and obviously carefully edited.
Features: The five sections cover basic management, procedures, on-call problems, diseases and disorders, and pharmacology. Most of the illustrations are in the procedures section and are simple and easy to understand. The on-call section has always been my favorite. It is a wonderful resource for residents or general staff who are confronted with a problem (i.e. bloody stool) at a time when consultation might not be immediately available. Each problem is reviewed as to a database, differential diagnosis, studies to be done, plan and potential therapies. The pharmacology section, while not as extensive as Neofax 2009, Young and Mangum (Thomson Reuters, 2009), has been completely updated and is fairly comprehensive. A few easy to read radiographs complement the radiology section, but the new section on rashes and dermatologic problems, unfortunately, has no pictures.
Assessment: This is the best of the softcover, quick reference guides in neonatology (compared to Manual of Neonatal Care, 6th edition, Cloherty et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2008), The Michigan Manual of Neonatal Intensive Care, 3rd edition, Donn (Elsevier, 2003), or Manual of Pediatric Intensive Care, Kirpalani et al. (People's Medical Publishing House, 2002)). It is updated frequently and each edition becomes more comprehensive without becoming unwieldy. Although other manuals may be more comprehensive in certain areas (i.e. Atlas of Procedures in Neonatology, 4th edition, MacDonald and Ramasethu (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2007) for procedures or Neofax for drugs), this one is the best of the general handbooks especially as an on-call reference.
