Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Cara A Geary, MD, PhD (University of Washington School of Medicine)
Description: This is an extremely convenient, pocket-sized handbook covering neonatology from antenatal diagnosis to discharge planning of patients. It is easy to carry and is a great asset in assessing a sick neonate. The breadth of common neonatal issues are covered, and useful pearls, broad differential diagnosis, diagnostic strategies, and effective management plans are provided. Where possible, the editors have based their practice guidelines on convincing evidence or consensus statements from recognized experts.
Purpose: The editors' objective of providing a concise manual to aid in the assessment and management of the neonate is nicely met. The new chapters provide helpful information for trainees in neonatology.
Audience: Although directed at students, residents, and subspecialty trainees, the book provides a convenient, concise neonatology reference for neonatal care providers of all levels.
Features: This new edition features timely and useful new chapters on fetal diagnosis and intervention, neonatal surgery, critical care of congenital heart disease, discharge planning, and infection control. It also contains a well-written formulary of drugs commonly used in neonates, along with unique chapters addressing breast feeding and ethical issues in neonatology. Flow diagrams and tables appear throughout the book and are wonderful quick references.
Assessment: This is a wonderful addition to the relatively few pocket references in neonatology. Its size is perfect and this edition's new chapters are excellent resources to have at one's fingertips. Given how convenient this book is to carry in a pocket while on call, it would be helpful if future editions provide chapters on technical procedures and on-call management issues. In addition, a more uniform format throughout each topic/chapter would make it even more "user-friendly." Overall, it is a great resource and a welcome addition to pocket neonatology references.
