For more than two decades, Neonatology, edited by Dr. Tricia Lacy Gomella, has been the field's go-to guide for practical, up-to-date, and readily-accessible information on basic and advanced management techniques for the neonate. Featuring a logical outline approach that highlights essential information, this quick reference covers everything you need to know about on-call neonatal problems, procedures, diseases and disorders, and pharmacology. Ideal for the student, resident, fellow, nurse practitioner, physicians assistant, neonatal nurse and practicing physician it covers the latest developments in the field to provide state of the art newborn care. Some new features of the updated 8thEdition include
Reformatting of the table of contents making it more user friendly and hopefully more logical.Section I includes essential prenatal and postnatal topics such as “Fetal Assessment,” “Obstetric Anesthesia and the Neonate,” “Resuscitation of the Newborn,” and “Neonatal Transport.”
Section II encompasses basic assessment and management of a newborn with a new chapter addressing “The Golden Hour.”
Section III includes advanced management topics such as the evolving areas of complementary and integrative therapies and 2 new chapters: “Genetic and Genomic Testing in the Newborn Period” and “Neonatal Palliative Care.”
Section IV includes all the basic and advanced bedside procedures commonly used in neonatology. We have added an entire new section on point-of-care ultrasound in Chapter 44. We have also included point-of-care ultrasound information on pertinent procedures.
One of the most popular sections of the book, the “On-Call Problems” section, now includes a total of 35 common neonatal problems with 1 new problem added: “Abdominal Distension.”
Section VI, “Diseases and Disorders,” covers all the common and a few not so common, but clinically important, diseases of the neonate. We have added a new subsection on “Infectious Diseases” to encompass the growing literature on infectious diseases that may be present in a neonate. Two new chapters were added in this section addressing dengue infection and Zika virus.
The section on neonatal pharmacology includes significant updates of medications commonly used in neonates. Since there are relatively few medications formally approved for use in neonates, the medication information has been carefully curated by our outstanding group of neonatal PharmDs. We believe it to be the most comprehensive list of medications found in a manual such as ours. The “Effects of Drugs and Substances on Lactation and Infants” chapter has been revised to include the most common medications that might be used by a breast-feeding mother. The appendices include other useful reference tables and information. A hallmark of our book has been noting areas that are “controversial,” and this edition continues that tradition.
