Here's today's most encyclopedic, in-depth compendium of knowledge on the normal and abnormal physiology of the fetus and neonate. Over 270 international authorities detail the unique characteristics that distinguish fetal and neonatal physiology from the physiology of adultsand, where appropriate, address the pathophysiology and clinical management of selected neonatal diseases. Each chapter extensively revised and bibliographies updated Clinical correlation chapters help the reader measure the impact that their understanding of physiology can have on the outcome of a sick newborn or premature infant This exhaustive text of basic research can aid in preparation for neonatology board exam 33 new chapters, including chapters on molecular genetics, extracellular matrix and embryogenesis, apoptosis, and angiogenesis An expanded section on the placenta and interuterine growth that includes new discussions of the pathophysioloy of preterm birth fetal and maternal responses to intrauterine inflammation and maternal vascular disease and fetal development.
