Since it first published, the Handbook of Neonatal Intensive Care has been the mainstay reference for neonatal nurses. Co-edited and authored by physicians, it focuses on the collaborative nature of neonatal intensive care and examines evidence-based clinical decision-making to demonstrate every aspect of the intensive care of the neonate, with a strong emphasis on clinical practice. Key neonatal topics are covered, and pathophysiology is examined using a systems approach. Comprehensive enough for both physicians and nurses, this handbook is a vital resource for those providing neonatal intensive care. Multidisciplinary author and contributor team present a real-world perspective similar to that experienced in the neonatal intensive care unit. Clinically applicable content is set in boldface type for easy identification for busy neonatal care providers. Evidence-based practice explained in the first chapter provides a solid background with evidence-based rationales and references to underscore its significance for neonatal health care providers. Diagnostic Imaging chapter includes basic information on how diagnostic imaging tests are evaluated. Follow-Up Care chapter covers how health care providers should refer the neonate and parents to appropriate care post-discharge from the NICU. Includes a Parent Teaching section for each disorder or relevant section. Infection in the Neonate chapter includes current immunization recommendations for neonates. Case studies illustrate important points when writing hospital orders for the neonate. Parent Teaching feature highlights post-discharge care of the neonate. Critical Findings feature, located in the assessment section of disorders, helps the nurse prioritize data and steps in initial care. Data Collection feature incorporates information that should be included as part of the neonates history.
